UN Treaties and Armenia

Most of the international treaties do not have any executive power. In some countries these treaties have supremacy over the state legislation; in many countries treaties are given a status of constitution and in a number of countries only certain provisions of the given treaty are reflected in the state legislation.

After its membership to the United Nations in 1992, the Republic of Armenia signed and ratified a number of international agreements, treaties and conventions, thus committing itself to create such conditions which will provide for the respect towards the obligations proceeding from those international documents. Corresponding to the Charter of the United Nations “all members, in order to ensure to all of them the rights and benefits resulting from membership, shall fulfill in good faith the obligations assumed by them in accordance with the present Charter” (Charter of the United Nations, article 2, point 2).

Correspondingly, the Constitution of the Republic of Armenia expresses this idea in its article 6 in this way: “The international treaties shall come into force only after being ratified or approved. The international treaties are a constituent part of the legal system of the Republic of Armenia.”

Here under you can find the thematic division (according to the UN Treaties official classification) of the UN Treaties that Armenia is party to. Each thematic link contains the list of the UN documents of the relevant field, their status, date of Armenia's signature, ratification or accession, as well as a link to the full text of the treaty.
