Treaties are agreements between two or more nations. When you are researching treaties, there are several initial questions you should ask in order to determine where to begin your research. Is the United States a party to the treaty? Is it a bilateral treaty (between only two countries), or are there more signatories, making it a multilateral treaty? Is the treaty still in force? Has it been amended? Or are you trying to determine whether a treaty even exists, rather than trying to find one you already know about? -Copied from Goodson Law Library's guide on treaties at Duke Law.
