This provision deals with eight principles of the Convention. These principles have the function as guiding principles, which should be referred to in interpreting other provisions of the Convention. The principles of Article 2 have two functions, i.e. Fundamental and operational. In order to clarify the meaning of these principles, it is indispensable to trace the legislative history from the stage of the meetings of independent experts until the very last intergovernmental meetings of experts. Then each principle should be analyzed, referring to other provisions of the Convention and operational guidelines.
