Treaty Research with Flare

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies has released a new treaty index, the Flare Index to Treaties (FIT). FIT is searchable by any of the following: key words from the title of the treaty; additional keywords relevant to the subject matter; the date on which the treaty was concluded; and the place where the treaty was concluded. For example, a free text search for genocide will take you to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide. When you click on the Convention, you will discover that the treaty was concluded on 9/12/1967 in New York and is published at 78 U.N.T.S. 777. There are also several links that will take you to the full text of the treaty. For more resources related to treaty research, see the Rutgers International Resources page.
