Using a number of case studies, research was carried out on the effect, interpretation and application of such international regulations in domestic law. The study of various areas of law produced certain conclusions. For example, Dutch courts are not consistent in their application of international interpretation rules, do not proceed to interpret international provisions merely because they ‘are aimed at the state’ and are wrongly influenced by EU law in the interpretation of international conventions. Improvements on these points together with other findings are presented in a flow chart.
