Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the lessons and projections of the codification and progressive development of International Law as seen ultimately by the universal juridical conscience. Codification appears to go hand in hand with progressive development of International Law. The work of codification and progressive development purports to strengthen the international legal order, in securing the primacy of International Law; it ensues from a prise de conscience of the members of the international community to respond to its normative needs. In the mid-XXth century, the reconstruction of International Law took account of superior values common to humankind. Shortly before their adoption, the U.N. Charter reaffirmed, in its preamble, faith in fundamental human rights and in the dignity and worth of the human person, in its determination to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war and to establish conditions for the prevalence of peace and justice and respect for international obligations.

Keywords: codification; human rights; International Law; juridical conscience; progressive development; U.N. Charter
