FLARE Index to Treaties

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in the United Kingdom recently launched the FLARE Index to Treaties, a searchable database of basic information on over 1,500 of the most significant multilateral treaties from 1856 to the present.

Information comes from many sources such as Multilateral Treaties: index and current status (London: Butterworths, 1984, tenth supplement, 1994), International Legal Materials (Washington: American Society of International Law, 1962-) , Bulletin of International Legal Developments/Bulletin of Legal Developments (London: British Institute of International and Comparative Law, 1966-), United Nations Treaty Series Index, etc.

Information about each treaty includes:

  • the official, popular and alternative titles of the treaty;
  • the date on which the treaty was concluded;
  • the place where the treaty was concluded;
  • where the full text of the treaty can be found in printed publications;
  • links to where the text is available on the internet
  • the name of the state or international organisation acting as depository for the treaty; etc.

A more detailed description is available on the LLRX.com website.
