Foreign and international law researchers will be interested to learn that the FLARE Index to Treaties is now available on the web. FLARE is a consortium of British law libraries which provides a series of “Foreign Research Guides” through the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies and which has supported the creation of the FLARE Index to Treaties online. This index is a useful successor to Bowman and Harris’s Multilateral Treaties: Index and Status as it provides a free searchable database of over 1500 significant multilateral treaties, i.e. treaties with 3 or more parties, and their amendments and protocols. The database covers treaties from 1856 to present and is searchable by title keyword, subject keyword, date, or place. The search results include, citation to print copies of the treaties, ratification information and best of all links to the text of treaties that are available online.
On March 6, the library hosted the John and Mary Yaremko Forum on Multiculturalism and Human Rights in the form of a showcase of student scholarship on women’s human rights. The papers presented are now available on the Women’s Human Rights Resources Programme Website and represent a wide range of issues and current thinking on domestic and international women’s human rights.
