The State of Finland is bound by international treaties in force. Finland concludes both bilateral and multilateral treaties with foreign states and international organisations. Bilateral treaties are made between two states or a state and an international organisation, and multilateral treaties are made between several states.
Bilateral and multilateral treaties with foreign states
Lists of the bilateral and multilateral treaties between Finland and foreign states and international organisations are published in the publication series of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
Treaties in the Finlex database
Finlex is a public online database of legal information, owned by the Ministry of Justice, which can be used free of charge. The international treaties database includes treaties concluded between Finland and foreign states and international organisations as well as a comprehensive reference database.
Searches can be made by entering, for example, the name of the treaty.
Treaties for which Finland is depositary
The parties to a multilateral treaty can designate a depositary to take care of the practical measures related to the contractual process.
