Data sources:

  • UNODA - United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs

    The United Nations Treaty Collection brings together all the treaties and international agreements concluded by member states of the United Nations since 1946. The UN website contains the official texts in the original language and in English or French where additionally necessary. The collection includes all the important international law agreements on the issues of human rights, armaments, natural resources, refugees, the environment and maritime law.

  • BICC - BICC - Bonn International Center for Conversion

    BICC is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting peace and development. The work of the institute focuses on constructive conflict transformation as well as disarmament and poverty reduction. In preparing this map, BICC has, where possible, used the latest text of the respective agreement to identify the countries that have ratified. Where this was not possible, secondary sources have been drawn on.
