Are there data sources listing international treaties held between countries of the world? From treaties between 2 countries, up to treaties among dozens of countries. The status of the treaty, ratification and adoption details would be valuable details to have.

I hope someone comes and expands the valuable stuff in the links I provided into a full-blown answer. – Deer Hunter Jun 21 '13 at 14:33
These are perfect, thanks! – ted.strauss Jun 21 '13 at 14:43
The links you provided -especially the first one- are fairly straightforward in terms of looking up a treaty by search queries, and exporting to csv. So sure, I'll re-post those links with some explanation in a few days, unless someone else does first. – ted.strauss Jun 21 '13 at 15:17

A searchable directory of international treaties can be found here:

Do you know under which license this database is published? Is it Open Data? Couldn't find anything on their website. Also, it seems that the download only includes multilateral treaties and not bilateral ones -- or am I mistaken? – Patrick Hoefler Jun 28 '13 at 11:03
