A successor state is a state that takes over some or all of the territory and assets from a previously established nation. It is a concept regarding the acceptance by other governments of a newly created state, based on a perceived historical relationship with a prior state. Transfer of rights, obligations, and property can include overseas assets, participation in treaties, membership in international organizations, and debts.
