Hastings International and Comparative Law Review

Authors

Randall S. Leff

Abstract

Recognition is the act whereby the executive of a nation formally acknowledges the existence of a new state or government and determines all of the legal consequences flowing from this act to the new state or government. The author of this note proposes that recognition should be founded upon international legal standards, rather than political considerations.
