This chapter offers a new set of sample clauses, building off the Treaty Maker’s Handbook framework with several modifications. First, based on current practice, it includes samples of clauses not found in Blix and Emerson’s earlier work (e.g. participation clauses for regional integration organizations, NGO participation clauses, clauses signalling an intent to conclude a political commitment). Second, this new treatment reorganizes the treatment of other topics Blix and Emerson did consider; for example, in lieu of simply reproducing Preambles, clauses that implicate a treaty’s object and purpose are presented instead. The current set of sample clauses focuses on illustrating variations and precedents in treaties themselves.
