Chapter Summary

Traditional International Law devoted much attention to the concept of territory, to which it ascribed a central and key position among the prerequisites of statehood. The current revitalization of the foundations of International Law, with the emergence of new concepts, seems to make abstraction of classic special solutions, shifting the emphasis to the pursuance of common, universal goals, to the benefit of human beings everywhere. The crystallized right to self-determination of peoples is inherent to populations living in non-self-governing territories or in other circumstances, finding solid support in contemporary international law. A recent development in the domain of territory in International Law pertains to the transitional administration of territorial units by the United Nations, on behalf of the international community.

Keywords: International Community; non-self-governing territories; Traditional International Law
