This chapter takes up this notion and introduces you to the role of international legal norms as a particular means for the social regulation of international affairs. Imagine a small settlement with a number of properties on each of which stands one house in which lives one family. This settlement has no common government, parliament, court system or police force. The internal affairs of each family as much as the borders of each property are respected as inviolable.
International law is a set of rules intended to bind states in their relationships with each other. It is largely designed to apply to states, both to constrain the laws of war and to empower them law of sovereignty. Increasingly, international law has been codified, so that today most international obligations are contained in treaty form, although historically customary international law played a relatively more important role than it does today. The role of international law in informing foreign policy decision making has waxed and waned over the course of the past century. It has also varied significantly across countries. It is striking the extent to which international interactions have become reflected in and regulated by formal state-to-state agreements. It also discusses the implementation, compliance, and effectiveness of international law.
In many other constitutions of the world, International Law stands recognized as the accepted code of conduct in international relations. Even in such other states where no constitutional or statutory recognition has been given to International Law, an indirect acceptance stands affirmed by not denying the binding nature of rules of International Law. Interdependence is an incontrovertible fact of international living. This makes it imperative for the members of international community—sovereign nation-states, to establish and conduct, social, economic, cultural and political relations among themselves. The need for keeping order in these relations has been an equally important necessity. This necessity has been, in the main, responsible for the origin and development of several rules of behaviour among nations. The body of such rules as govern the conduct of relations among nations is known as International Law.
