• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

Ratification of stuff

This is one area that I have no clue about, and need enlightenment about as part of my role on a different forum. Basically, with international treaties and conventions (I'm looking particularly at the Convention on the Continental Shelf and UNCLOS that follows that), to ratify them, does the legislature need to pass an Act, or is it a power that a government has? And I'm looking particularly at this information in the UK.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Some treaties are simple legislation, others require a referendum. It depends on whether the treaty conflicts with the Consitution.

That's quite unique to Ireland, actually, and it's not about conflicts with the Constitution but changes to it.
