The Flare Index is the creation of the IALS (Institute of Advanced Legal Studies) and the School of Advanced Study University of London, with support and encouragement of the FLARE Group of major UK law libraries (Cambridge, IALS, Oxford, SOAS and the British Library) among other international law collections.
The database contains significant, but select, multilateral treaties from 1352 to more recent times. Also included are bilateral treaties from 1353 to 1815. There are clear guidelines as to what is included and what is not included in this collection, with emphasis placed on particular select resources. Their goal is to provide “a research tool aiding scholars and students, lawyers and librarians in researching the international law of treaties – whether they are new or experienced in the field.”
