About the collections



The Cape Town Convention Academic Project (the 'Project') seeks to assist scholars, practising lawyers, judges and other government officials, and industry by providing information on and education about the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment (the ‘Convention’) and its protocols (collectively, ‘CTC’).

The Project is a joint undertaking between the University of Oxford Faculty of Law and the University of Washington School of Law. Parts of the Project are under the joint auspices of the Project and UNIDROIT, the international organisation that led the development and acts as the treaty depositary of the CTC. ICAO and OTIF are also cooperating with the Project. The AWG (www.awg.aero) is the founding sponsor of the Project.

The Convention, adopted in late 2001, is already one of the most successful commercial law treaties.  Over fifty (50) countries are parties to it.  It is equally important in substantive and conceptual terms: taken together, its provisions address property rights, insolvency, electronic commerce, and dispute resolution to a degree without precedent in the field of transnational commercial law.  Information about the current status of the CTC and the declarations made by contracting states to these instruments can be found on the UNIDROIT website.
