Chapter Summary

This chapter examines whether Article 32 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, which refers to supplementary means of interpretation, and more specifically the recourse to travaux préparatoires is facing a similar future. The hero in Fahrenheit 451 eventually ends up with a group of people, who are essentially 'living books'. Each has memorized a book in order to salvage it from destruction. The previous analysis showed that the current practice allows for quite a bit of flexibility and expansiveness as to the use of the preparatory work with respect to third parties. This enhances the importance and field of application of the travaux préparatoires.
