Chapter Summary

The relationship between International Law and time is an ineluctable one, which requires much more attention than the one dispensed to it thus far. The incidence of the temporal dimension on International Law is acknowledged in face of new needs of protection of human beings, also in a preventive way, as illustrated in particular by the current expansion of provisional measures of protection. The temporal dimension underlies the whole domain of Law in general, and of Public International Law in particular. Classical International Law departed from an essentially static outlook of the task of regulation. The central issue of the relation between time and law is, in fact, inherent to the very birth and exercise of individual rights. In sum and conclusion, the temporal dimension is inherent to legal science and underlies the whole domain of Law. International Law makes no exception to that, being interpreted and applied in time.
