40 Years of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties
Alexander Orakhelashvili, Sarah Williams
BIICL, 2010 - Law - 206 pages
Treaties form a basis for the daily conduct of international relations, and thus it is vital to see how they are made, amended, interpreted, and enforced. This volume presents insights into how the law of treaties has worked over the past 40 years, since the 1969 Vienna Convention was adopted as the comprehensive treaty to regulate the law of international agreements. The book capitalizes on 40 years of international experience, with a group of expert contributors describing and analyzing the subject. Multiple issues of the Convention are covered, including the aspects of conclusion, interpretation, reservation, amendment and modification, validity, and other issues.
