Traditionally, the substance of Articles 31-33 has been described by reference to the various means of interpretation enumerated in said provisions, and little more than that.

Produktbeschreibung
Traditionally, the substance of Articles 31-33 has been described by reference to the various means of interpretation enumerated in said provisions, and little more than that. As argued in this book, more detail is required. On closer inspection, not only does the Vienna Convention provide information on the interpretation data (or means of interpretation) to be used by appliers when interpreting a treaty provision. It also instructs the appliers how, by using each datum, they shall argue to arrive at a conclusion about the meaning of the interpreted provision; and, to some extent, it determines the weight that different data of interpretation shall be afforded when appliers discover that, depending on the specific datum they bring to bear on the interpretation process, the conclusion arrived at will be different. Hence, the regime laid down in VCLT Articles 31-33 will have to be described as a system of rules. This book investigates the contents and structure of this system. By importing knowledge from linguistics, and pragmatics in particular, a model is established giving representation to the concept of a rule of interpretation. Drawing on this model, the book then proceeds to reconstruct the contents of the various rules of interpretation. To facilitate reference, the conclusions suggest a list of 44 rules, all of which can be invoked by appliers citing VCLT Articles 31-33. TOC:List of contents. List of abbreviations. Table of cases. List of treaties. 1. Introduction. 2. The Concept of a Rule of Interpretation. 3. Using Conventional Language ("The Ordinary Meaning"). 4. Using the Context: The "Text" of a Treaty. 5. Using the Context: the elements set out in VCLT art. 31 § 2 (A) och (B). 6. Using the context: the elements set out in VCLT art. 31 § 3. 7. Using the Object and Purpose. 8. Using the supplementary means of interpretation. 9. Using the supplementary means of interpretation (cont'd). 10. The relationships between different means of interpretation. 11. The special rule regarding the interpretation of treaties authenticated in two or more languages.
