This book brings together updated papers presented at a conference to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the conclusion of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. The collection consists of nine articles by scholars with a strong interest in the areas of state responsibility and treaty law. As the interplay between state responsibility and treaty law becomes more and more important, a book dealing with this topic cannot fail to be of interest.
