About the product

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.
