International Treaty Obligations

When a country ratifies a treaty, it assumes a legal obligation to implement the treaty.

In addition to the country’s obligation to implement the substantive provisions of the treaty, some conventions stipulate within them a requirement that State parties also submit periodic reports to the relevant treaty body on the legislative, judicial, administrative, policy or other measures which it has adopted, and which give effect to the provisions of the treaty.
