Publications and documents
The FCO publishes official publications every year, including annual reports, white papers and travel publications.
Find out more about the work of our dedicated historians and the documents they produce.
Treaty command papers published since 1997 (plus, where relevant, the accompanying explanatory memorandum (EM)) are listed in this area of the website chronologically and by subject.
The FCO's Treaty section has two main roles – to advise on practice and procedural matters in relation to the production of treaties, and to provide information on those treaties to which the United Kingdom is, or has been, a party.
