Government of the Federated States of Micronesia

Treaties/Conventions regarding Human Rights


Please note: The following page lists multilateral treaties and conventions which the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) has signed or is a party to. The page only includes those treaties and conventions which are registered with the United Nations and does not include bilateral agreements (= agreements between two states).

The page does not contain any information on the listed treaties/conventions. If you do look for such information, please consult the appropriate search engines on the world wide web. The Government of the FSM does not guarantee the accuracy or comprehensiveness of the information on the page.

The first item listed is the name of the respective treaty/convention (or protocol thereto). The second item lists action in respect to the Federated States of Micronesia (Signature, Accession, Acceptance, Ratification, etc). If a link is offered, it will show the relevant document of the treaty action.

If a date is specified under Signature, then it refers to the day at which the FSM has signed the treaty/convention. All other dates listed refer to the entry into force for the FSM (the day since when the treaty/convention has become binding for the FSM). This date is different from the date on the relevant documents.
