Sujets de droit international

Introduction

Les sujets de droit international peuvent être décrits comme les personnes ou les entités qui possèdent la personnalité internationale. Tout au long du XIXe siècle, seuls les États étaient sujets de droit international public. Après la deuxième guerre mondiale, de plus en plus de nouveaux acteurs ont émergé dans l'arène juridique internationale, comme les organisations internationales créées par les États, les organisations intergouvernementales créées par les États, les organisations non gouvernementales (ONG) créés par des individus, les multinationales et même les personnes physiques (c'est-à-dire les individus).  Ils peuvent être considérés comme ayant dans une plus ou moins grande mesure la capacité de devenir des personnes internationales. 

Le présent guide de recherche se veut un point de départ pour mener des recherches sur les sujets de droit international. Il fournit les textes juridiques de base disponibles à la Bibliothèque du Palais de la Paix, qu'il s'agisse de documents imprimés ou de documents sous format électronique. La section intitulée "Bibliographie sélective" présente une sélection de manuels, d'articles importants, de bibliographies, de publications périodiques, de publications en série et de documents pertinents. Des liens permettent de rejoindre le catalogue PPL. Le mot-matière de la bibliothèque (mot-clef) Sujets de droit international est un instrument de recherche dans le catalogue. Une attention particulière est prêtée à nos inscriptions aux bases de données, revues électroniques, livres électroniques et autres ressources électroniques. Enfin, le présent guide de recherche contient des liens vers des sites Internet pertinents et d'autres ressources en ligne présentant un intérêt particulier.

    Summers, J., Gough, Non-State Actors and International Obligations Creation, Evolution and Enforcement

    Non-State Actors and International Obligations examines the contribution and relevance of non-state actors in the creation and implementation of international obligations. These actors have traditionally been marginalised within international law and ambiguities remain over their precise role. Nonetheless, they have become increasingly important in legal regimes as participants in their implementation and enforcement, and as potential holders of duties themselves. Chapters from academics and practitioners investigate different aspects of this relationship, including the sources of obligations, their implementation, human rights aspects, dispute settlement, responsibility and legal accountability.

  • The Influence of NGOs on International Law

    From a traditional point of view, International Public Law has been understood as a set of rules produced by states in order to regulate relations between them. Since the end of the Cold War, the role of NGOs in international law is growing in importance and their activities are reaching the remotest parts of the world. In this blog, I will briefly discuss how NGOs have transformed international law as well as how they continue to contribute to the development of international law.
