Chapter Summary

The consolidation of the legal personality and capacity of the individual as subject of international law constitutes the most precious legacy of the international legal thinking of the second half of the XXth century. In considering the position of individuals in International Law, the thinking of the so-called founding fathers of the law of nations is not to pass unnoticed. Still under the impact of the II world war, international legal experts acknowledged the need to reconstruct International Law on the basis of the recognition of the condition of the individual as its subject and of his access to international justice. In fact, the recognition of the juridical personality of the individuals fulfils a true necessity of the international community, which today seeks to guide itself by common superior values.
