Interpretation of Treaties: Law and Practice

Ravi Sharma Aryal (Author)
Synopsis The international community does not know as yet any supreme law making body and law enforcement agency comparable to that of modern state, the treaties remain the principle method by which states maintain relations among themselves. The necessity for treaty interpretation has arisen because the words used in an instrument rarely have exact and single meanings because all possible situations which may arise under it cannot be or at least are not foreseen and expressly provided for by the parties at the time of its drafting. Thus, interpretation involves giving a meaning to a text, not just any meaning which appeals to the interpreter. This book includes the evolution of interpretation and the approaches of treaties interpretation. The book also covers a study of the provisions relating to rules of interpretation including the interpretation of treaties authenticated in two or more languages. Finally it tries to provide a clear picture of treaty interpretation with the development of the approaches taken by the International Court of justice. This book would prove a useful material to those who are interested in this subject as well as to the general readers/scholars.
