Estate as a human rights difficulty is manifested via its incorporation in overseas tools and as a subject matter of the legislations via property-related circumstances thought of via foreign human rights organs. but, for the main half, the connection among estate and human rights has been mentioned in fairly superficial phrases, missing a transparent important connection or universal language.

Example text

In other words: what is public international law composed of ? As we have seen, PIL can be used to regulate any matter of common interest among states: it can regulate the recognition of marriages or of intellectual property patents, as it can regulate the status of the moon or other celestial bodies. There is thus no point in trying to define PIL from the point of view of its possible content: it can encompass any question and its possible content is limitless. The line between what is left to the states, the so-called domestic jurisdiction, and what is regulated by international law is substantially open-ended and varies over time.

War is a social phenomenon, albeit one of conflict; however, it does not take place in a vacuum of legal rules. Even warfare has its constraints and limitations. The rules responsible for regulating and limiting the phenomenon of armed conflict by spelling out the rights and duties of the belligerents and of the third states not participating in the armed conflict are called the law of armed conflict (LOAC). The term international humanitarian law (IHL) is seen today as practically synonymous with the LOAC.

2 This term was introduced by the Conventions with the intention of increasing the number of conflicts covered by the norms regulating state action in this area. The ‘state of war’, which previously governed the application of law of war norms, does not cover all actual fighting. It rather depends upon the free choice of a state to be at war with another. This subjective will is normally expressed in a formal declaration, such as a declaration of war. Conversely, the term ‘armed conflict’ encompasses all actual fighting, whether it is formally qualified as war by the concerned states or not.
