Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949 and Additional Protocols of 8 June 1977 — Ratifications, accessions and successions as at 31 December 1995
R/A/S = Ratification: a treaty is generally open for signature for a certain time following the conference which has adopted it. However, a signature is not binding on a State unless it has been endorsed by ratification. The time limits having elapsed, the Conventions and the Protocols are no longer open for signature. The States which have not signed them may at any time accede or, in the appropriate circumstances, succeed to them.
