Breach of Specified Governmental Obligations

Breach of Specified Governmental Obligations

1. The violation of a treaty by a government. Because there is no supranational authority regulating international law, there is no specific remedy for this type of breach. However, it harms the country's reputation and may result in diplomatic action up to and including war.

2. A breach of contract by a government. This is governed by the law of the country in question.
