Treaties are one of the main sources of public international law as outlined by art.38 of the Statute of
the International Court of Justice. Treaties are essentially agreements between States (generally in
written form), which cover a myriad of issues, "inter alia", human rights, trade and investment, the
environment, armed conflict, the sea and natural resources.

Treaties may be also called alternative names, such as, conventions, covenants, protocols, charters,
pacts, frameworks, codes and agreements. However, despite differences in the title or name of the
agreement, they are essentially treaties.
