UN Documents

This document collection is part of the OceanStates project, and contains United Nations treaties and agreements that make up the framework of international law and international instruments concerning issues that are central to the project.

The Collection includes key documents related to these topics from the UN Security Council, the General Assembly, and the subsidiary body to the General Assembly, the Human Rights Council. These are main UN organs that make the formal UN documents which, by the circumstances, are adopted by the states parties.

The Collection is a work in progress, and will continue to be updated and filled in with relevant documents.

All the documents are publicly available documents that can be found at various official UN document databases, which is referred to at the different Collection subsites. The Collection is meant to provide easy access and overview of central documents related to OceanStates.
