MountainLEX, designed by the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention, is the first online database to provide a clear and easy access to legislation for the protection and development of mountains, with special emphasis on European mountains.

In order to find a text quickly or to have a global view of a particular decision level, the database is ordered in three categories, in which it has been decided to also include, beside legal documents, so-called “soft” law texts:

  1. – International law: general and (non European) regional legislation
  2. – European law: EU and Council of Europe legislation as well as intergovernmental agreements
  3. – National law: 8 Contracting Parties of the Alpine Convention (national and federal, when appropriate)
