This article deals with the dynamic interpretation of International Treaties. Albeit not codified as such, this crossover dimension of interpretation finds the place it deserves in Art. 31, especially, yet not exclusively, in its Par. 3 lit. c). Widely and often resorted to by all international jurisdictions, dynamic interpretation vertues and pitfalls are exhaustively here analyzed. In this connection, the difference between application and interpretation of a conventional norm is incidentally studied.
