the Travaux Préparatoires
To mark its centenary in 1997 the CMI has published the Travaux Préparatoires leading to
the above conventions, Rules and Protocols.
These publications will be invaluable to practising lawyers and academics alike.
To have easy access to the deliberations of those responsible for drafting these instruments
will aid interpretation. The Editor has simplified access by grouping all the discussion on an
Article by Article basis - the days of the chronological search are over !
Each book contains the history of the instrument, a record of the debates on each
Article and the draft texts produced at each stage of the discussions.
