The Pacific Islands Treaty Series, otherwise affectionately known as "PITS", aims to be a comprehensive treaty database for the Pacific Islands region publishing bilateral and multilateral treaties which Pacific Island states have entered into amongst themselves, as well as with nations and organisations external to the region.
In addition, some treaties are included in the PITS database if they are relevant to the Pacific Island states and territories that are the focus of the PITS site even if they do not have any Pacific Island state parties.
The PITS database focuses on 20 countries and territories in the Pacific.
The countries and territories are shown above. The predominant, if not official international language in these Pacific Island countries and territories is either English or French or both.
Hence, the PITS is a bilingual database which contains both French and English language treaties as well as information in both English and French languages.
