​Treaties, Conventions and Other International Agreements


A treaty (sometimes called a convention, covenant, protocol, charter, pact, etc.) is an agreement between two or more nations or international organizations. It may be bilateral (between two countries), or multilateral (between three or more countries). Example: International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage, June 19, 1975, 973 U.N.T.S. 3, 9 I.L.M. 45.
