Chapter Summary

International Law goes much further than that, in the quest of humankind for the realization of justice at both national and international levels. Nor can one study the foundations of International Law making abstraction of its basic principles, which form the substratum of the legal order itself. Every legal system has fundamental principles, which inspire, inform and conform their norms. General principles of law have contributed to the formation of normative systems of protection of the human person. The general principles of law have thus inspired not only the interpretation and the application of the legal norms, but also the law-making process itself of their elaboration.

Keywords: Hague Court; humankind; legal system; principles of International Law
