The Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS) has released a groundbreaking book titled “Nigeria’s Treaty Law and Practice,” which offers a comprehensive framework for understanding the entire spectrum of treaty management in Nigeria, from negotiation to implementation.

The book, featuring thirteen chapters written by erudite scholars, examines how Nigeria navigates complex negotiating issues, the process of adopting and managing subsequent treaty obligations that affect international relations, and the judicial attitude of national courts towards treaties.

According to the preface written by the book’s editor, Professor Muhammed Tawfiq Ladan, PhD, a Humbert Humphrey Fellow and the Director General of NIALS, treaties play a fundamental role in the history of international relations, especially in developing peaceful cooperation among nations in various sectors of mutual concern.

The book delves into the different roles that the respective organs of government play in the treaty-making and implementation process, exposing certain trends in state compliance with treaty obligations that feature as challenges. The contributors offer practical solutions to the difficulties in treaty negotiation, adoption, and implementation while identifying potential areas of improvement in compliance with international obligations.

Professor Ladan emphasizes that the book is an easy read for stakeholders and individuals seeking to expand their knowledge of state law and practice concerning treaties, thanks to its clear and concise language.
