Discusses the role played by the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties 1969 art.32, which permits recourse to a treaty's travaux preparatoires and the circumstances of its conclusion as a "supplementary means of interpretation", in the Convention's overall interpretative scheme. Considers the potential application of art.32 in international investment disputes.
