A Look Inside
Main Description
This handbook provides a guide to the UN Secretary-General's role as a depositary for multilateral treaties, and to treaty law and practice in relation to the registration function. It is mainly designed for the use of Member States, secretariats of international organisations, and others involved in assisting governments on the technical aspects of participation in multilateral treaties. It is intended to promote wider State participation in the multilateral treaty framework, and thus advance the international rule of law.
Unpaid Annotation
Treaties are the primary source of international law and the Secretary-General of the United Nations is the main depositary of multilateral treaties in the world. This Handbook serves as a practical guide to the depositary practice of the Secretary-General and the registration practice of the United Nations Secretariat. It discusses participating in multilateral treaties; key events in a multilateral treaty; registering or filing and recording treaties; and contacts with the United Nations Treaty Section.
