Is Jersey able to enter into Treaties and Conventions in its own right?

Jersey is able to enter into international instruments its own right only in limited circumstances under letters of entrustment from the United Kingdom. Therefore, for the majority of international Treaties and underlying Protocols which Jersey wishes to enter into, ratification is only possible if the UK is ratifying or has previously ratified a Treaty or Protocol, and such ratification has been extended, at the request of the Government of Jersey, to include Jersey.​
