Chapter Summary

In this study, the authors mean by value principle inspired by an ethical precept of order, a principle which is intended to influence social life and which must be respected. The non-use of force in relations between states and, with certain nuances, interesting reports in non-state entities, on the one hand, and respect for fundamental rights, on the other hand, do are not the only expressions of common values in the international society. It must be added, including the emergence of the rules on the protection of the environment, or the condemnation of genocide. These common values are, for some of them, relatively ancient appearance, but it is more recently that international law has seen the development of the principles and skills that ensure the common values established bases and more assertive influence of least this is the intention. The authors refer, first, to compulsory law, ius cogens and, second, obligations erga omnes.

Keywords: ius cogens; erga omnes; genocide; compulsory law; international law
