Excerpt

The purpose of this synopsis is to make it easy to ascertain what contractual engagements of the nature indicated exist between two or more countries. With this end in view there is first presented a "répertoire" for each individual country, giving, in concise form, any agreement, whether bilateral or mutilateral, which such country may have entered into with regard to the problem of security and the pacific settlement of disputes. In each instance, under the name of the country, there is indicated whether it is bound by the Hague Conventions for the Pacific Settlement of International Disputes, whether it is a member of the League of Nations, a signatory of the statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice, whether it is bound by the Optional Clause of that tribunal, by the General Act and by the Pact of Paris (See references for these documents, infra). There is also indicated the date when the obligation concerned was assumed. In the case of the General Act the letter (A) indicates that the state in question has adhered to all the chapters of that instrument, while the letter (B) signifies that it has only adhered to chapters I and II, which include conciliation and judicial settlement.

In the second place, a tabulation has been made of multilateral treaties for the pacific settlement of disputes, of security and disarmament, with a list of the countries bound by their provisions. This section has been divided into three parts, dealing (1) with general pacts of security and for the pacific settlement of disputes, (2) with regional pacts of the same nature, and (3) with disarmament treaties.

It should be observed that only treaties which are believed to be actually in force have been cited. Wherever possible, an indication has been given where the text of the treaty may be found. In the case of treaties registered with the League of Nations, reference has of course been made to the League of Nations Treaty Series (LNTS). Where such treaties have not as yet been published but have been registered, the registration number has been given.

In the case of treaties which have not been registered with the League (in the great majority of cases, these are treaties entered into before the establishment of the League), reference, wherever possible, has been given to the publication entitled: British and Foreign State Papers (BFSP). Reference is also made to the United States Treaty Series (USTS). In one instance, in the case of the Great Lakes Naval Treaty between the United States and Great Britain, April 28, 1817, reference is made to Malloy, Treaties and Conventions of the United States -- cited, Malloy.

Only treaties which have been registered with the League of Nations, or concerning which official information has been obtained directly from the . . .
