This series features works on substantial topics in international law which provide authoritative statements of the chosen areas. Taken together they map out the whole of international law in a set of scholarly reference works and treatises intended to be of use to scholars, practitioners, andstudents. This book provides a guide to interpreting treaties properly in accordance with the modern rules for treaty interpretation which are codified in the "Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties". These rules now apply to virtually all treaties both in an international context and within manynational legal systems where treaties have an impact on a large and growing range of matters.

This case law, combined with the history and analysis of the rules, provides a basis for understanding this most important task in the application of treaties internationally and within national systems of law. Anylawyer who ever has to consider international matters, and increasingly any lawyer whose work involves domestic legislation with any international connection, is at risk nowadays of encountering a treaty provision which requires interpretation, whether the treaty provision is explicitly in issue oris the source of the relevant legislation.This expanded edition includes consideration of a range of recent cases, takes account of relevant work of the International Law Commission, and has new material addressing matters raised in the growing body of literature on treaty interpretation.
