by other human rights treaty bodies. The activity of codification of international law, undertaken by the
InternationalLawCommission, is also relevant; for instance, the draft
articles adopted by the Commission in 2007 on diplomatic protection
(recommended to the States by the resolution of the General Assembly
no. 62/67 of 6 December 2007), connecting diplomatic protection with
State responsibility, is clarifying some aspects concerning the protection of human rights; similarly, the Guide concerning reservations
to multilateral treaties, submitted to the
/50/40, vol. 1, Annex VI, and the United States of America, ibid. See
also the views of the Special Rapporteur of the InternationalLawCommission on
reservations to treaties, A/CN.4/477/Add.1, 13 June 1996.

justiﬁed restrictions on such freedom (under article 12) ‘limitations on the freedom
to settle in areas inhabited by indigenous or minority communities’ (para. 16).
