What is International Law?
International law is a system of agreements and treaties made between nations that govern how they interact with other nations, including the citizens and businesses within them. As the world becomes more globalized and people travel and do business with and within other countries regularly, international law is becoming more relevant than ever.
Because most international laws are governed by treaties, it is typically up to individual nations to enforce such laws. However, some collective international organizations have been established to enforce certain treaties. The most notable example is the United Nations, which has members from nearly every country on Earth.
Types of International Law
Generally speaking, international law issues fall into one of three categories:
- Private international law: This concerns conflicts between private entities, such as individuals or corporations, which have a significant relationship to more than one nation. For example, if an American corporation is sued by one in Japan, private international law determines which jurisdiction should hear the dispute. Also called “conflict of law.”
- Public international law: This deals with the relationships between nations and entities within them. Maritime law, treaty law, and international human rights law all fall under public international law.
- Supranational law: This form of international law is based on the limitation of the rights of sovereign nations between one another. In supranational law matters, counties explicitly submit their right to make judicial decisions by treaty to a set of common tribunal. The European Union (EU) is a good example of a supranational group.
