A must-have for those interested in constitutional treaty laws This book is a must for those concerned with treaty issues and constitutional law. This is an important reading for basic international law courses.

About the Author John Norton Moore is one of the best-known international lawyers in the by: 2. Treaty Interpretation addresses two important constitutional questions, whether the United States should follow the normal international legal standard in treaty interpretation rooted in the intent of the treaty parties or a new dual' standard of interpretation rooted in the intent of the Senate, and whether the Senate ever has constitutional authority to attach domestic conditions to treaties.

Currently, treaty interpretation is guided by Articles 31 through 33 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT). The fundamental rule is that a treaty shall be interpreted in good faith in accordance with the ordinary meaning to be given to the terms of the treaty in their context and in the light of its object and purpose.

These rules lay the foundation for treaty interpretation. They Manufacturer: Springer.

Treaty Interpretation. Basic Rules. Articles 31 and 32 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT) set forth the basic rules of treaty interpretation.

This chapter begins by examining the constitutional relevance of the Vienna Convention rules of interpretation, and the debate on the need for rules of interpretation.

Treaty interpretation and related adjudication require ‘constitutional approaches’ in clarifying indeterminate legal principles like human rights, rule of law, democracy, non-discrimination, necessity, proportionality, or ‘fair and equitable treatment’.Author: Ernst-Ulrich Petersmann.

Treaties require interpretation, and there are many controversial questions about what we might call the “sources for treaty interpretation”. What materials can be used to interpret a treaty. And how are they to be used. (These questions are quite distinct from the traditional questions about the “sources of international law”.) For answers to these questions, many international Author: Donald Regan.

The rule of law is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as: "The authority and influence of law in society, especially when viewed as a constraint on individual and institutional behavior; (hence) the principle whereby all members of a society (including those in government) are considered equally subject to publicly disclosed legal codes and processes.".

The rule pacta sunt servanda is thereby an indispensable rule, a rule of natural law in the sense that without it no system of law can be conceived. Still, binding as treaties may be, for a long time it was thought expedient to underline the binding force of treaties by practical : Jan Klabbers.

National Treaty Law and Practice This book, which is dedicated to the memory of the distinguished international lawyer Monroe Leigh, presents a consolidated treatise on how different states organize their treaty-making through national law and practice. Traditionally, scholars have studied treaties from either an international or national perspective examining treaties in terms of the Author: Robin Gardner.

Purposive interpretation was introduced as a form of replacement for the mischief rule, the plain meaning rule and the golden rule to determine cases. Purposive interpretation is exercised when the courts utilize extraneous materials from the pre-enactment phase of legislation, including early drafts, committee reports, etc.
