State jurisdiction, reflects the international law general principles , of state sovereignty, equality of states , and non-interference in other states domestic affairs. and it means that a government and its courts , have general power to exercise authority, over all persons and things, within its territorial boundaries , in relation to civil and criminal matters. however, there must be a link , between the individual , the offence , and the state court exercising jurisdiction over that person. while it's primarily territorial, jurisdiction of states may be based on other grounds, like national security , and citizenship of the victim or the offender, however , the enforcement of such jurisdiction, is restricted by territorial factors the first base of jurisdiction, is the territorial principle , and it means that the local court power, is geographically restricted, within the borders of that state. However, As one offence may take place in more than one single country, the territorial jurisdiction is divided into 2 categories, subjective and objective. the subjective principle, is exercised by the state in which the offence is started , while the objective principle, is exercised by the state in which the offence is completed. For example, a fraud can be committed by someone in ireland, against another in england. or a shooting incident , can take place on the borders of two countries, on the other hand, the state power is not absolute within its territory , as certain persons, like diplomats. are immune, from the local courts jurisdiction, the nationality of the parties, is the second ground for state jurisdiction, as a state can exercise its jurisdiction, beyond its territory ( boundaries ) , regardless where the person is located, subject that the offender or the victim ( the passive personality ) is a national of the claimant country. The 3rd ground is the protective or security principle, and it allows a State , to exercise jurisdiction over foreigners, outside its territory , regardless of their citizenship , when there is a threat to its national security. And lastly, the universality principle , is the fourth ground for state jurisdiction, and it allows any state , to punish certain international offences abroad , like piracy, slavery , torture , crimes against humanity and genocide, whether committed by or against foreign nationals.

What are the sources of International public law? Le droit international expliqué | Quelles sont les sources du droit international? By Hesham Elrafei https://www.linkedin.com/in/heshamelrafei Overview of the sources of international public law as stated in Article 38 of the international court of justice ICJ statute : treaty, customary law, courts decisions, jurisprudence and law principles. Sources of International Law , explained , simplified and visualized. Les sources du droit international public مصادر القانون الدولي وفقال لمادة 38 من النظام الأساسي لمحكمة العدل الدولية 1 What are the sources of international law? 2 The term ‘source of law’ refer to legal rules governing the international community. 3 Unlike national laws , where sources of law are specified in a norm superior to laws and regulations, usually a constitution, no such norm exists in international law. 4 The International Court of Justice, stipulated a catalogue of sources of international law, which is used when deciding legal disputes submitted before the world court. 5 the first source is international treaties, whether a general or particular treaty, a bilateral ,regional or multinational one, 6 a treaty is a binding international agreement. by which the countries are obliged to observe their contractual obligations. 7 the 2nd source is customary law. At the outset, international law was mainly constituted by customs. 8 which is by its nature, universal, whereas treaty law binds the parties to these treaties only 9 International custom consists of 2 elements: First is State practice, which means What generally States Do and Say. 10 Oppinio Juris is the 2nd element of customary law. It means that the state practice, has to be accepted as law, by the other states. 11 In addition to treaties and customs, other sources exist, such as Judicial decisions , juristic writings and general principles of law. 12 while they are not formal sources , they can still play an important role as an evidence of the law.

Intervention Intervention is dictatorial interference by a state in affairs of another state. Intervention, in principle is prohibited by international law. But it does not prohibit intervention in all circumstances. Intervention can be diplomatic or military. Grounds for intervention – 1. Self-preservation- This is valid ground for a long time. The use of force in self-defense is justified only when it is necessary for self-preservation. 2. Gounds of humanitarian- There are lots of cases in which intervention on humanitarian Grounds was made. UN permits intervention on the ground of violation of human rights. But action must be taken by UN and not by any individual state. 3. To enforce treaty right – It was valid ground in past. UN charter does not recognize it valid. 4. Balance of power- It creates International tension. It is condemned by Jurists. UN Charter says it is invalid ground. 5. Protection of Person and Property- Protection of Person and Property in foreign state is no more valid ground. 6. Collective intervention- Collective intervention means intervention by United Nations. Security Council can take decision in order to maintain International peace and security. For example Security Council took action against Korea in 1950 and Congo in 1961. 7. Intervention in civil war- Generally it is not allowed. But if war is of such magnitude that it is threat to International peace and security then allowed.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ The territorial principle (also territoriality principle) is a principle of public international law under which a sovereign state can prosecute criminal offences that are committed within its borders. The principle also bars states from exercising jurisdiction beyond their borders, unless they have jurisdiction under other principles such as the principle of nationality, the passive personality principle, the protective principle, and possibly universal jurisdiction. The Lotus case was a key court ruling on the territoriality principle. In 1926, a French vessel collided with a Turkish vessel, causing the death of several Turkish nationals. The Permanent Court of International Justice ruled that Turkey had jurisdiction to try the French naval lieutenant for criminal negligence, even though the incident happened beyond Turkey's boundaries. This case extended the territoriality principle to cover cases that happen outside a state's boundaries, but have a substantial effect on the state's interests or involve its citizens. Questions have surfaced regarding how the territoriality principle applies, with the rise of globalization and the Internet. The applicability of this principle also was in question, with the case against Augusto Pinochet and other cases of transnational justice.

What is LOTUS CASE? What does LOTUS CASE mean? LOTUS CASE meaning - LOTUS CASE definition - LOTUS CASE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ The Lotus case concerns a criminal trial which was the result of the 2 August 1926 collision between the S.S. Lotus, a French steamship (or steamer), and the S.S. Boz-Kourt, a Turkish steamer, in a region just north of Mytilene (Greece). As a result of the accident, eight Turkish nationals aboard the Boz-Kourt drowned when the vessel was torn apart by the Lotus. On 7 September 1927 the case was presented before the Permanent Court of International Justice, the judicial branch of the League of Nations, the predecessor of the United Nations. The issue at stake was Turkey's jurisdiction to try Monsieur Demons, the French lieutenant on watch duty at the time of the collision. Since the collision occurred on the high seas, France claimed that the state whose flag the vessel flew had exclusive jurisdiction over the matter. France proffered case law, through which it attempted to show at least state practice in support of its position. However, those cases involved ships that both flew the flag of the same state. The Court, therefore, rejected France's position stating that there was no rule to that effect in international law. The Lotus principle or Lotus approach, usually considered a foundation of international law, says that sovereign states may act in any way they wish so long as they do not contravene an explicit prohibition. The application of this principle – an outgrowth of the Lotus case – to future incidents raising the issue of jurisdiction over people on the high seas was changed by article 11 of the 1958 High Seas Convention. The convention, held in Geneva, laid emphasis on the fact that only the flag state or the state of which the alleged offender was a national had jurisdiction over sailors regarding incidents occurring in high seas. The principle has also been used in arguments against the reasons of the United States of America for opposing the existence of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Recognition & Enforcement of Foreign Judgments , explained - International Law Animation lectures. By Hesham Elrafei https://www.linkedin.com/in/heshamelrafei This video visualize and simplify the concept of Foreign Court decisions enforcement civil and commercial matters abroad. In terms of principles of comity, reciprocity and res judicata (that is, that the legal issues in question , have been finally decided already by a court , between the same parties, and cannot be ruled on again. ) As a result , the number of treaties between states, has grown quickly , in order to regulate this conflict of law. In the absence of a treaty , a country is not obliged to recognize or to enforce a foreign judgment , as the substance of the foreign court decision is not reviewed . however , some legal systems recognize foreign judgments , more or less to the same degree , as domestic judgments . For instance, countries with more restrictive domestic rules, like France , tend to enter into more bilateral treaties, comparing to the United States, who has zero. In all cases, whether in the presence of a treaty or without , a state can deny the enforcement of a judgment , after examining the following causes: 1ST , whether the rendering court, that issued the judgment has jurisdiction over the case . 2ND , that the judgment is valid , final , and on the merits , under the law of the rendering court 3RD That the defendant had the right to fair trial , was properly served with notice of the proceedings , and had an opportunity to be heard in court , and the right to appeal. 4TH, that the foreign judgment, is not contrary to the public policy of the enforcing country, its national laws , nor with international law Given that no general duty exists, to recognize foreign judgments at all, such exceptions are generally compatible with international law, unless treaty law provides otherwise.

What does INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW mean? INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW meaning - INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW definition - INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. International Trade Law includes the appropriate rules and customs for handling trade between countries. However, it is also used in legal writings as trade between private sectors, which is not right. This branch of law is now an independent field of study as most governments have become part of the world trade, as members of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Since the transaction between private sectors of different countries is an important part of the WTO activities, this latter branch of law is now a very important part of the academic works and is under study in many universities across the world. International trade law should be distinguished from the broader field of international economic law. The latter could be said to encompass not only WTO law, but also law governing the international monetary system and currency regulation, as well as the law of international development. The body of rules for transnational trade in the 21st century derives from medieval commercial laws called the lex mercatoria and lex maritima — respectively, "the law for merchants on land" and "the law for merchants on sea." Modern trade law (extending beyond bilateral treaties) began shortly after the Second World War, with the negotiation of a multilateral treaty to deal with trade in goods: the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). International trade law is based on theories of economic liberalism developed in Europe and later the United States from the 18th century onwards. International Trade Law is an aggregate of legal rules of “international legislation” and new lex mercatoria, regulating relations in international trade. “International legislation” – international treaties and acts of international intergovernmental organizations regulating relations in international trade. lex mercatoria - "the law for merchants on land". Alok Narayan defines "lex mercatoria" as "any law relating to businesses" which was criticised by Professor Julius Stone. and lex maritima - "the law for merchants on sea. Alok in his recent article criticised this definition to be "too narrow" and "merely-creative". Professor Dodd and Professor Malcolm Shaw of Leeds University supported this proposition. In 1995, the World Trade Organization, a formal international organization to regulate trade, was established. It is the most important development in the history of international trade law. The purposes and structure of the organization is governed by the Agreement Establishing The World Trade Organization, also known as the "Marrakesh Agreement". It does not specify the actual rules that govern international trade in specific areas. These are found in separate treaties, annexed to the Marrakesh Agreement. Scope of WTO : (a) provide framework for administration and implementation of agreements; (b) forum for further negotiations; (c) trade policy review mechanism;and (d) promote greater coherence among members economics policies Principles of the WTO: (a) principle of non-discrimination (most-favoured-nation treatment obligation and the national treatment obligation) (b) market access (reduction of tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade) (c) balancing trade liberalisation and other societal interests (d) harmonisation of national regulation (TRIPS agreement, TBT agreement, SPS agreement) The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade(GATT) has been the backbone of international trade law since 1948 after the charter for international trade had been agreed upon in Havana. It contains rules relating to "unfair" trading practices — dumping and subsidies. Many things impacted GATT like the Uruguay Round and the North American Free Trade Agreement.

What does INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW mean? INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW meaning - INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW definition -INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. International humanitarian law (IHL) is the law that regulates the conduct of war (jus in bello). It is that branch of international law which seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict by protecting persons who are not participating in hostilities, and by restricting and regulating the means and methods of warfare available to combatants. IHL is inspired by considerations of humanity and the mitigation of human suffering. "It comprises a set of rules, established by treaty or custom, that seeks to protect persons and property/objects that are (or may be) affected by armed conflict and limits the rights of parties to a conflict to use methods and means of warfare of their choice". It includes "the Geneva Conventions and the Hague Conventions, as well as subsequent treaties, case law, and customary international law." It defines the conduct and responsibilities of belligerent nations, neutral nations, and individuals engaged in warfare, in relation to each other and to protected persons, usually meaning non-combatants. It is designed to balance humanitarian concerns and military necessity, and subjects warfare to the rule of law by limiting its destructive effect and mitigating human suffering. Serious violations of international humanitarian law are called war crimes. International humanitarian law, jus in bello, regulates the conduct of forces when engaged in war or armed conflict. It is distinct from jus ad bellum which regulates the conduct of engaging in war or armed conflict and includes crimes against peace and of war of aggression. Together the jus in bello and jus ad bellum comprise the two strands of the laws of war governing all aspects of international armed conflicts. The law is mandatory for nations bound by the appropriate treaties. There are also other customary unwritten rules of war, many of which were explored at the Nuremberg War Trials. By extension, they also define both the permissive rights of these powers as well as prohibitions on their conduct when dealing with irregular forces and non-signatories. International humanitarian law operates on a strict division between rules applicable in international armed conflict and internal armed conflict. This dichotomy is widely criticized. The relationship between international human rights law and international humanitarian law is disputed among international law scholars. This discussion forms part of a larger discussion on fragmentation of international law. While pluralist scholars conceive international human rights law as being distinct from international humanitarian law, proponents of the constitutionalist approach regard the latter as a subset of the former. In a nutshell, those who favors separate, self-contained regimes emphasize the differences in applicability; international humanitarian law applies only during armed conflict. On the other hand, a more systemic perspective explains that international humanitarian law represents a function of international human rights law; it includes general norms that apply to everyone at all time as well as specialized norms which apply to certain situations such as armed conflict and military occupation (i.e., IHL) or to certain groups of people including refugees (e.g., the 1951 Refugee Convention), children (the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child), and prisoners of war (the 1949 Third Geneva Convention).

Our exploration of ethical theories continues with another theistic answer to the grounding problem: natural law theory. Thomas Aquinas’s version of this theory says that we all seek out what’s known as the basic goods and argued that instinct and reason come together to point us to the natural law. There are, of course, objections to this theory – in particular, the is-ought problem advanced by David Hume.

What does WESTPHALIAN SOVEREIGNTY mean? WESTPHALIAN SOVEREIGNTY meaning - WESTPHALIAN SOVEREIGNTY definition -WESTPHALIAN SOVEREIGNTY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Westphalian sovereignty is the principle of international law that each nation state has sovereignty over its territory and domestic affairs, to the exclusion of all external powers, on the principle of non-interference in another country's domestic affairs, and that each state (no matter how large or small) is equal in international law. The doctrine is named after the Peace of Westphalia, signed in 1648, which ended the Thirty Years' War, in which the major continental European states – the Holy Roman Empire, Spain, France, Sweden and the Dutch Republic – agreed to respect one another's territorial integrity. As European influence spread across the globe, the Westphalian principles, especially the concept of sovereign states, became central to international law and to the prevailing world order. Scholars of international relations have identified the modern, Western-originated, international system of states, multinational corporations, and organizations, as having begun at the Peace of Westphalia. Both the basis and the conclusion of this view have been attacked by some revisionist academics and politicians, with revisionists questioning the significance of the Peace, and some commentators and politicians attacking the Westphalian system of sovereign nation-states. The traditional view of the Westphalian system is that the Peace of Westphalia was an agreement to respect the principle of territorial integrity. In the Westphalian system, the national interests and goals of states (and later nation-states) were widely assumed to go beyond those of any citizen or any ruler. States became the primary institutional agents in an interstate system of relations. The Peace of Westphalia is said to have ended attempts to impose supranational authority on European states. The "Westphalian" doctrine of states as independent agents was bolstered by the rise in 19th century thought of nationalism, under which legitimate states were assumed to correspond to nations—groups of people united by language and culture. The Westphalian system reached its peak in the late 19th century. Although practical considerations still led powerful states to seek to influence the affairs of others, forcible intervention by one country in the domestic affairs of another was less frequent between 1850 and 1900 than in most previous and subsequent periods. The Peace of Westphalia is important in modern international relations theory, and is often defined as the beginning of the international system with which the discipline deals. International-relation theorists have identified several key principles of the Peace of Westphalia, which explain the Peace's significance and its effect on the world today: 1. The principle of the sovereignty of states and the fundamental right of political self determination. 2. The principle of legal equality between states. 3. The principle of non-intervention of one state in the internal affairs of another state. These principles are shared by the "realist" international relations paradigm today, which explains why the system of states is referred to as "The Westphalian System". Both the idea of Westphalian sovereignty and its applicability in practice have been questioned from the mid-20th century onward from a variety of viewpoints. Much of the debate has turned on the ideas of internationalism and globalization which, in various interpretations, appear to conflict with Westphalian The Westphalian system is used as a shorthand by academics to describe the system of states which make up the world today. In 1998, at a Symposium on the Continuing Political Relevance of the Peace of Westphalia, NATO Secretary-General Javier Solana said that "humanity and democracy two principles essentially irrelevant to the original Westphalian order" and levied a criticism that "the Westphalian system had its limits. For one, the principle of sovereignty it relied on also produced the basis for rivalry, not community of states; exclusion, not integration."

The depth and breadth of international law. Kal Raustiala: I think international law is one of these things that's a little bit like the air where it's everywhere. We don't really notice it so when you get on a plane and you fly to Europe the ability to get on that plane, cross over the air space of other countries, sometimes you see the little map when you're in the plane that shows you're crossing over Greenland or whatever, all of that is governed by international law in different ways. Different treaties are in place to take care of all the questions that might arise about aviation. So that's a really mundane example and then at the other extreme we've got much more contentious examples like-- Let's take the war in Iraq. So as most of us remember in the run up to the war the Bush administration went to the security council at the United Nations and tried to get a second resolution, and they're doing that because there is a legal framework in place that governs the ability of countries to enter in to armed conflict. So between those two bookends a zillion other examples but I think the thing to recognize about international law is in a globalized world, in an integrated world, you are constantly dealing with things that are crossing borders or you're crossing borders and international law is usually playing some role in shaping that. Question: What dictates international law?the most common thing are treaties and most of us are familiar with-- I mentioned aviation. There are treaties governing that. The UN itself was created by a treaty. So treaties are kind of the backbone a little bit like we think of statutes in the domestic context, but we do have something like common law. We call it customary law so a good example would be the law of the sea. There's all kinds of rules about ships and their ability to go on the high seas and who can board and where they can cross. Most of that is governed by custom and the idea is this custom kind of a cruise over time like the common law becomes entrenched and accepted as law, and then there is also courts. Right. So we have-- The International Court of Justice sits in The Hague and we've got a series of other courts. Right. The World Trade Organization has a court and so forth. So there is a set of judicial institutions much like in our domestic system so in a lot of ways it's a very similar system. There isn't I suppose a constitutional equivalent. There isn't a kind of grand governing thing but there are literally tens of thousands of treaties so a surprising amount of topics are covered.Question: Who are the governing bodies?There are a whole set of international organizations so from the United Nations being the most broad, the most elaborated, probably the most famous. The World Trade Organization is a little more specialized and then you've got dozens and dozens and dozens, thousands probably, of these subsidiary international organizations, international maritime organization dealing with law of the sea questions and so on down the line. And these have been created over the years. Some of them date back to the nineteenth century but for the most part that's a kind of twentieth-century phenomenon so one of the things we see in the last century or so has been one, the rise of these international organizations, the UN being the paramount example, and two, the use of treaties. Treaties existed in the past but when we talked about custom and common law that was much more common. Now we tend to codify that in to treaty. So those two things are sort of two major trends of the last century.Question: How will globalization affect international law?in the sense that you can have a treaty for example in which every country is a member of that treaty and so would be governed by that, and in fact we have lots of treaties that are pretty close to what you've got in virtually every single country. The Convention on the Rights of the Child I think is a good example where only the United States and Somalia when I last checked were not parties to that treaty. The United Nations Charter comes pretty close. Right. So virtually every country-- Switzerland for a long time was a holdout. Virtually every country is part of the UN system and so governed by the rules of the UN Charter so there is no barrier to that and we do see it.

International law is the set of rules, agreements and treaties that are binding between countries. When sovereign states enter into agreements that are binding and enforceable, it’s called international law or international legal system. It is horizontal in nature because all States are equal in nature. International laws promote peace, justice, common interests and trade. International laws apply to governments. It’s up to each state government to implement and follow international laws. A country’s laws apply to citizens and other people that are present in the country. However, it’s up to the country’s governing authority to apply international law and keep their agreements with the other countries that are involved. Therefore domestic legal system is said to be vertical in nature because its the state machinery that governs the individuals What comes to your mind when you think of international law? It is simply the set of rules, agreements and treaties that are binding between countries. When sovereign states enter into agreements that are binding and enforceable, it’s called international law or international legal system. It is horizontal in nature because all States are equal in nature. This means that the law applies to all nations equally. So what are the functions of international law? International laws promote peace, justice, common interests and trade. International laws apply to governments. It’s up to each state government to implement and follow international laws. In contrast a country’s laws apply to citizens and other people that are present in the country. However, it’s up to the country’s governing authority to apply international law and keep their agreements with other countries. International law generally comes from five sources given in the article 38 of ICJ Statute: treaties, customs, general principles of law, judicial decisions of ICJ and academic writings. Treaties are express agreements that countries enter into voluntarily. They’re written agreements. They are considered a more modern and deliberate method of law-creation. There are many writers who feel that treaties are most important source of international law as the expressed consent of the state must be taken before it is applied. The entire system of international law is based on consent. The Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties of 1969 calls for interpretation of treaties based on the plain language of the words in the treaties. The context of the words and the presumption of good faith and good intentions can also play a role in interpreting a treaty. Customs are common practices between countries. They’re common practices that are so expected and consistent that countries operate with the belief that the custom is legally required and binding. Examples of customary law are the prohibitions of a state using or condoning genocide or slavery. Generally, as long as a state doesn’t object to a customary law, it applies to that state. General principles of law are rules of law that develop over time. Principles of law are an understanding of how the law should work based on past rulings. In addition to looking at past rulings, international courts can also look to judicial opinions for help identifying and interpreting international law. The judicial decisions of ICJ are also a source of law though it is subsidiary in nature. The general assembly of UN has the right to ask an advisory opinion from ICJ therefore Court is quite authoritative as far as law-making and the status of the law is concerned. Finally the writings of international academics are also considered subsidiary source of international law as they have a direct impact on customary international law. Until recently international law took no notice of individuals. It used to be a system that only operate between states and governs this interstate relationship. It was generally unconcerned with what states inside its boundaries. The idea of human rights emerged stronger after World War II. Governments then committed themselves to establishing the United Nations, with the primary goal of maintaining international peace and security. People wanted to ensure that never again would anyone be unjustly denied life, freedom, food, shelter, and nationality. Member states of the United Nations pledged to promote respect for the human rights of all. To advance this goal, the UN established a Commission on Human Rights and charged it with the task of drafting a document spelling out the meaning of the fundamental rights and freedoms proclaimed in the Charter. The Commission, guided by Eleanor Roosevelt’s forceful leadership, captured the world’s attention. On December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was adopted by the 56 members of the United Nations. With the goal of establishing mechanisms for enforcing the UDHR, the UN Commission on Human Rights proceeded to draft two treaties:

Yes, even wars have laws. To find out more, visit http://therulesofwar.org ******** Rules of War in a Nutshell - script Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864,and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected. - CIVILIANS - Most importantly, civilians can never be targeted. To do so is a war crime. “When they drove into our village, they shouted that they were going to kill everyone. I was so scared, I ran to hide in the bush. I heard my mother screaming. I thought I would never see her again.” Every possible care must be taken to avoid harming civilians or destroying things essential for their survival. They have a right to receive the help they need. - DETAINEES - “The conditions prisoners lived in never used to bother me. People like him were the reason my brother was dead. He was the enemy and was nothing to me. But then I realized that behind bars, he was out of action and no longer a threat to me or my family.” The laws of war prohibit torture and other ill-treatment of detainees, whatever their past. They must be given food and water and allowed to communicate with loved ones. This preserves their dignity and keeps them alive. - SICK & WOUNDED - Medical workers save lives, sometimes in the most dangerous conditions. “Several fighters from both sides had been critically wounded in a fierce battle and we were taking them to the closest hospital. At a checkpoint, a soldier threatened us, demanding that we only treat his men. Time was running out and I was afraid they were all going to die.” Medical workers must always be allowed to do their job and the Red Cross or Red Crescent must not be attacked. The sick or wounded have a right to be cared for, regardless of whose side they are on. - LIMITS TO WARFARE - Advances in weapons technology has meant that the rules of war have also had to adapt. Because some weapons and methods of warfare don't distinguish between fighters and civilians, limits on their use have been agreed. In the future, wars may be fought with fully autonomous robots. But will such robots ever have the ability to distinguish between a military target and someone who must never be attacked? No matter how sophisticated weapons become it is essential that they are in line with the rules of war. International Humanitarian Law is all about making choices that preserve a minimum of human dignity in times of war, and makes sure that living together again is possible once the last bullet has been shot.

Media Stakeout by H.E. Mr. Jorge Arreaza, Minister of the People’s Power for Foreign Affairs, Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on the Situation in Venezuela. Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza announced the formation of a new group at the United Nations to defend the “principles of international law” and the rights of peoples to “live in peace, without interference, without interventions, without the threat of the use of force.” Addressing reporters in New York today (14 Feb), Arreaza said the group would coordinate action to defend the UN Charter. This includes: respect for the principles of equal rights of peoples, respect for the sovereign equality of Member States, settling disputes through peaceful means as to never threaten international peace and security, refraining from the threat to use force against any state, respect for the territorial integrity and political independence of states, and non-intervention in the domestic affairs of states. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Jorge Arreaza, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Venezuela: “We all have the right to live without the threat of use of force, and without the application of illegal coercive unilateral measures. In the next few days, we will begin a series of actions, as a group, to raise awareness around the dangers that our peoples currently face, particularly the people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. We call upon all the Member States of the United Nations to join us in defending international law as the only guarantor of humanity’s peaceful coexistence.” The Foreign Minister said the group was not only aimed at defending Venezuela. He said it would work in a collective manner in all UN bodies, including the Security Council and the General Assembly, to defend the rights of its peoples. Arreaza reiterated his call on the media “not to get involved with this show, this spectacle, that the US is organizing” on humanitarian aid to his country. He said the US has blocked the Venezuelan economy costing the country over 30 billion USD and now wants to provide 20 million in “so-called humanitarian aid.” He asked reporters, “So, what is this? I’m choking you. I’m killing you. And then I’m giving you a cookie?” The Venezuelan Foreign Minister said the US was looking for loyalty from the Venezuelan armed forces, but their loyalty “has already been [proven].” He added that the “momentum of the coup that the government of the United States was promoting is over” and the US now had to rethink its strategy. Asked about reported movements of US special forces in several Caribbean islands, Arreaza said these events were “dangerous” adding that the US was “playing a new game of psychological warfare, and also trying to besiege and corner” his country. He stressed that his government would “protect every millimetre of the Venezuelan territory” and would respond to “any situation in a proportional manner to any type of attack against” his country. In response to a question on the 23 February deadline for humanitarian aid to enter the country given by opposition leader Juan Guiadó, the Foreign Minister said there was only one government in Venezuela, and as such, “no one can give deadlines, especially this man who was self-proclaimed; or who self-proclaimed himself as president of Venezuela in the middle of a street in a demonstration without any constitutional framework to support it.” He said Guiadó “doesn’t have effective control of a police patrol in Venezuela; so, whatever he says is absolutely absurd.”

What is COMITY? What does COMITY mean? COMITY meaning - COMITY pronunciation - COMITY definition - COMITY explanation - How to pronounce COMITY? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ In law, comity is "a practice among different political entities (as countries, states, or courts of different jurisdictions)" involving the "mutual recognition of legislative, executive, and judicial acts." Comity derives from the Latin comitas, courtesy, from cemis, friendly, courteous. The doctrine of international comity has been described variously "as a choice-of-law principle, a synonym for private international law, a rule of public international law, a moral obligation, expediency, courtesy, reciprocity, utility, or diplomacy. Authorities disagree as to whether comity is a rule of natural law, custom, treaty, or domestic law. Indeed, there is not even agreement that comity is a rule of law at all." Because the doctrine touches on many different principles, it is regarded as "one of the more confusing doctrines evoked in cases touching upon the interests of foreign states." The doctrine of international comity was created by a group of Dutch jurists in the late seventeenth century, most prominently Ulrich Huber. Huber and others sought a way to handle conflicts of law in a way that would reinforce the idea of Westphalian sovereignty. Huber wrote that comitas gentium ("civility of nations") required the application of foreign law in certain cases because sovereigns "so act by way of comity that rights acquired within the limits of a government retain their force everywhere so far as they do not cause prejudice to the powers or rights of such government or of their subjects." Huber "believed that comity was a principle of international law" but also that "the decision to apply foreign law itself was left up to the state as an act of free will." The idea of comity was introduced into English law by Lord Mansfield, a Scottish barrister and jurist. Mansfield viewed the application of comity as discretionary, with courts applying foreign law "except to the extent that it conflicted with principles of natural justice or public policy." Mansfield held in Somerset v Stewart (King's Bench 1772), for example, that slavery was so morally odious that a British court would not recognize the property rights of an American slaveholder in his slave. In the United States, Louisiana attorney Samuel Livermore (who wrote the first American treatise of conflict of laws in 1828) expressly rejected the comity doctrine as formulated by Mansfield and earlier writers, instead arguing that "courts were bound by international law to apply the same law that a foreign court would apply." This idea was rejected by Justice Joseph Story of the Supreme Court, who agreed with Mansfield and Huber in his Commentaries on the Conflict of Laws. Story's view, which ultimately prevailed, was that the consensual or voluntary application of comity doctrine would foster trust among states, "localize the effect of slavery," and reduce the risk of civil war. The U.S. Supreme Court's holding in Hilton v. Guyot (1895) that the enforcement of a foreign judgment was a matter of comity is viewed as the "classic" statement of comity in international law. The Court held in that case: "Comity," in the legal sense, is neither a matter of absolute obligation, on the one hand, nor of mere courtesy and good will, upon the other. But it is the recognition which one nation allows within its territory to the legislative, executive or judicial acts of another nation, having due regard both to international duty and convenience, and to the rights of its own citizens or of other persons who are under the protection of its laws. In the United States, certain foreign defamation judgments are not recognized under the SPEECH Act (a federal statute enacted in 2010), which supersedes the comity doctrine. The Act aims to stop "libel tourism."....

What is NATIONAL TREATMENT? What does NATIONAL TREATMENT mean? NATIONAL TREATMENT meaning - NATIONAL TREATMENT definition - NATIONAL TREATMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ National treatment is a principle in international law vital to many treaty regimes. It essentially means treating foreigners and locals equally. Under national treatment, if a state grants a particular right, benefit or privilege to its own citizens, it must also grant those advantages to the citizens of other states while they are in that country. In the context of international agreements, a state must provide equal treatment to those citizens of other states that are participating in the agreement. Imported and locally produced goods should be treated equally — at least after the foreign goods have entered the market. While this is generally viewed as a desirable principle, in custom it conversely means that a state can deprive foreigners of anything of which it deprives its own citizens. An opposing principle calls for an international minimum standard of justice (a sort of basic due process) that would provide a base floor for the protection of rights and of access to judicial process. The conflict between national treatment and minimum standards has mainly played out between industrialized and developing nations, in the context of expropriations. Many developing nations, having the power to take control over the property of their own citizens, wished to exercise it over the property of aliens as well. Though support for national treatment was expressed in several controversial (and legally non-binding) United Nations General Assembly resolutions, the issue of expropriations is almost universally handled through treaties with other states and contracts with private entities, rather than through reliance upon international custom. National treatment only applies once a product, service or item of intellectual property has entered the market. Therefore, charging customs duty on an import is not a violation of national treatment even if locally produced products are not charged an equivalent tax. National treatment is an integral part of many World Trade Organization agreements. Together with the Most-Favoured-Nation principle, national treatment is one of the cornerstones of WTO trade law. It is found in all 3 of the main WTO agreements (GATT, GATS and TRIPS). National treatment is a basic principle of GATT/WTO that prohibits discrimination between imported and domestically produced goods with respect to internal taxation or other government regulation. The principle of national treatment is formulated in Article 3 of the GATT 1947 (and incorporated by reference in GATT 1994); Article 17 of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS); and in Article 3 of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS). The aim of this trade rule is to prevent internal taxes or other regulations from being used as a substitute for tariff protection. A good summary is found in Japan-Alcohol which states; " national treatment obligation is a general prohibition on the use of internal taxes and other internal regulatory measures so as to afford protection to domestic production".

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Diplomatic immunity is a form of legal immunity that ensures diplomats are given safe passage and are considered not susceptible to lawsuit or prosecution under the host country's laws, although they can still be expelled. Modern diplomatic immunity was codified as international law in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (1961) which has been ratified by all but a handful of nations, though the concept and custom of such immunity have a much longer history dating back thousands of years. Many principles of diplomatic immunity are now considered to be customary law. Diplomatic immunity as an institution developed to allow for the maintenance of government relations, including during periods of difficulties and armed conflict. When receiving diplomats, who formally represent the sovereign, the receiving head of state grants certain privileges and immunities to ensure they may effectively carry out their duties, on the understanding that these are provided on a reciprocal basis. Originally, these privileges and immunities were granted on a bilateral, ad hoc basis, which led to misunderstandings and conflict, pressure on weaker states, and an inability for other states to judge which party was at fault. An international agreement known as the Vienna Conventions codified the rules and agreements, providing standards and privileges to all states. It is possible for the official's home country to waive immunity; this tends to happen only when the individual has committed a serious crime, unconnected with their diplomatic role (as opposed to, say, allegations of spying), or has witnessed such a crime. However, many countries refuse to waive immunity as a matter of course; individuals have no authority to waive their own immunity (except perhaps in cases of defection). Alternatively, the home country may prosecute the individual. If immunity is waived by a government so that a diplomat (or their family members) can be prosecuted, it must be because there is a case to answer and it is in the public interest to prosecute them. For instance, in 2002, a Colombian diplomat in London was prosecuted for manslaughter, once diplomatic immunity was waived by the Colombian government.
