United Nations Charter

Jump to:navigation, search

United Nations Charter is an important charter in the history of International Law. Also called the Charter of the United Nations, it is the foundational treaty of the international organization called the United Nations.

As a charter, it is a constituent treaty, and all members are bound by its articles. Furthermore, the Charter states that obligations to the United Nations prevail over all other treaty obligations. Most countries in the world have now ratified the Charter. One notable exception is the Holy See, which has chosen to remain a permanent observer state and therefore is not a full signatory to the Charter.
