We establish weak, strong, and converse duality results for weakly efficient solutions in vector or multiobjective variational problems, which extend and improve recent papers. For this purpose, we consider Kuhn–Tucker optimality conditions, weighting variational problems, and some classes of generalized convex functions, recently introduced, which are extended in this work. Furthermore, a related open question is discussed.
