This document describes the USA's tendency to play a major role in shaping treaties, and then not sign them, or sign and then ignore its obligations. Examples include the Kyoto Protocol, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Landmine Ban Treaty, and the verification protocol to the Biological Weapons Convention. This threatens international law and cooperation, the environment, human rights and public health. The report covers several examples in detail, and the implications this has for the negotiations around the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC)
