International law: three pillars
a) Private international law
b) International relations
c) Public international law
**this class is mostly about public international law
- It is the rules/principles that apply to international relations—a reflection of
international relations on treaties and practices
- Example: US-Iraq war: was it consistent with international law to engage in war
with Iraq? No, but it informs international relations
In international law, who is the judge? Who is the persecutor?
- Some say that there is no international law
- Those who do flaunt international law say that it does have an impact on how
states act/international relations
- Some countries have domestic laws to enforce international law
