Chapter Summary

This chapter is devoted to the position of treaties in the doctrine of the law of nations and the content of treaty law, perceived about the apparently technical question of the causes of nullity of treaties. Two aspects are primarily examined. One concerns the main rules of treaty law itself; the other is for the interpretation of treaties. Vattel also addresses the issue of successive treaties that examine in relation to rule of good faith, stating that "a sovereign already bound by a treaty may not make others contrary to the first" at least with other country than he had previously linked. Two main ideas emerged particularly on the interpretation of Treaties. On the one hand, respect the text, on the other, that of the will of the Parties. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: law of nations; treaty law; Vattel
