Treaties in Force is prepared by the Department of State for the purpose of providing information on treaties and other international agreements to which the United States has become a party and which are carried on the records of the Department of State as being in force as of its stated publication date.
The Secretary-General of the United Nations is the depositary of more than 560 multilateral treaties which cover a broad range of subject matters such as human rights, disarmament and protection of the environment.
This section will outline some online resources you may wish to consult in their research. Some are UCSB online databases, others are freely available. Most websites will not have the full text of treaties available and you should always try to consult multiple sources to be sure they have the correct information.
