Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to an attempt to clarify the true meaning of jus cogens and obligations erga omnes for the sake of academic determinacy and for such practical purposes as jurisdictional immunities. Jus cogens has become one of the most frequently used arguments in international law. Some authors ride roughshod over the traditional regimes, claiming that the effectiveness of jus cogens or obligations erga omnes must be the paramount consideration in any conceivable instances, even concerning their indirect repercussions.

Keywords: international law; jurisdictional immunities; jus cogens; obligations erga omnes
