The Research Handbook on the Law of Treaties provides an authoritative treatment of fundamental issues in international treaty law. Identifying key challenges facing the modern law of treaties, the Handbook presents an assessment of the potential future directions that the law could take.

Rather than an article-by-article commentary, the Handbook offers an innovative study of the spatial, personal and temporal dimensions of treaties, the tensions that arise due to the need for both flexibility and certainty in treaty relations, the interaction between treaty regimes and the potential ruptures, as well as the expansion of treaty law to international organisations, corporations and individuals. Each chapter includes an ‘agenda for research’, highlighting areas where future work could yield significant results.

This pioneering Handbook will prove an invaluable resource for researchers and advanced students, as well as providing unique insights for practitioners of international law.
