9780199546640: 1-2: The Vienna Conventions on the Law of Treaties: A Commentary (Oxford Commentaries on International Law)

The 1969 and 1986 Vienna Conventions on the Law of Treaties are essential components of the contemporary international legal order. They aim at regulating what has become the main source of public international law and a crucial tool in inter-state relations. The Vienna Conventions codify to a significant extent the customary rules that pre-existed in the field, but also put forward innovative concepts, such as jus cogens. In spite of their importance, these two instruments had so far not been the object of a detailed commentary. These volumes fill that gap, by providing both international and national lawyers with an in-depth analysis of each provision of both Conventions. The structure of each commentary is essentially uniform, with the first part dedicated to the exposition of that provision's object and purpose and to the assessment of its customary status. The second part of each commentary deals with the main issues of interpretation raised by the provision in question. Extensive reference is made to the travaux preparatoires of both Conventions, including the work of the UN International Law Commission and the proceedings of the 1969 and 1986 diplomatic conferences, and to practice both prior to and following the adoption of the Conventions. The 90 + authors who contributed to the book come from twenty different countries and include some of the most respected experts in international law.

Review:


"This is an excellent two-volume study of the Vienna Conventions on the law of treaties. The editors have assembled a large team of excellent scholars who together have accomplished the important task of providing a thorough, stimulating, readable and intellectually rich commentary on two multilateral conventions that lie at the heart of international law."
-- John Dugard, Netherlands International Law Review


"This must be the definitive reference work for these two conventions. Congratulations to Professors Corten and Klein and to each of the contributing authors."
-- International Law Prof Blog


"This is a magisterial work of sweeping proportions on a subject which, despite its somewhat esoteric nature, continues to have great practical importance."
-- Commonwealth Lawyers' Association
