Executive Agreements Require

is a party (TIAS). This database is the only current public database that contains the text of such agreements, but it is far from complete. As the site itself states, classified agreements are exempt from reporting. Nor does the Declaration Act require the publication of all unclassified agreements. Considering that the exact number of agreements is difficult to pin down, 104 agreements were notified to the Trump administration in the first year, according to the database. This corresponds to previous years (the average for the years in the database is 99 agreements per year). In 2018, only 39 agreements were notified. It is unclear whether this reflects a real decline if the site is simply not up to date or if a smaller percentage of the agreements reached has been notified through the database. . . .
