Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the relationship between politics and law of balance and proposes to classify into three broad categories the many possible ways to design the report. It outlines the history of European equipoise since the fifteenth century if we can distinguish, in fact, three images of its relationship with the international law, is that the idea itself is available in three versions. The chapter returns to the text of Vattel and to read it in the light of the two previous parts and shows that the speech of Neuchâtel publicist in the matter is richer and more projected towards the future that the definition quoted at the beginning would let believe. "An international law can exist only if there is a balance, a balance of power between the members of the family of nations". The original text of the chapter is in French.
