Flare Index to Treaties

The FLARE Index to Treaties, sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS), is a searchable database of treaty information, both current and historical dating back to 1353. It is focused in particular on multilateral treaties, conventions and agreements, with details of where the full text of each treaty may be obtained in paper and--if available--electronic form on the internet.

Using FLARE, the researcher will be able to identify the official, popular and alternative titles of the particular treaty; dates and place of conclusion; sources that the treaty has been indexed in; where the text of the treaty can be found in print and on the internet (IALS attempts to include only authoritative links); and more.

A significant portion of the index's content is drawn from Bowman and Harris' Multilateral Treaties: Index and Current Status, as well as from a number of other authoritative historical and contemporary sources.

The index is updated frequently, depending on available resources.
