A declaration of war (aka DoW) is a formal act by an authorized party of a government in order to declare a state of war between two or more nations. Who can declare war varies between nations. In many nations power is given to the head of state.

The official international protocol for declaring war was defined in the Hague Convention (III) of 1907 on the Opening of Hostilities.
