Significant Results

An important early undertaking was the compilation of Bowman and Harris, Multilateral Treaties: Index and Current Status (1984), a comprehensive and pioneering research source for information on around 1,000 of the more significant multilateral conventions. This work was subsequently updated by 11 cumulative supplements published by the Centre itself, which generated substantial funds for the support of other activities.

At the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Treaty Centre also undertook the preparation of the Fourth Volume of the Index of British Treaties, a work of almost 800 pages which was published in 1992 by HMSO.

Subsequently, the centre has completed a series of studies on diverse aspects of the law of treaties (including adoption, amendment and reservations) and on treaty-based areas of international law.

The unique nature of the work undertaken by the centre and the international reputation thereby established have generated a substantial volume of requests for advice. These have come from legal practitioners, academic researchers and journalists worldwide.

The existence of the centre has also provided opportunities for consultancy work and other kinds of practical involvement in the drafting, adoption and implementation of treaties, particularly in the area of human rights and the protection of the environment.
