Chapter Summary

The emergence in international life new actors such as multinational corporations, non-governmental organizations and the individual mark the profound changes in economic and social relations. International society, nascent at the time of Emer de Vattel, today reached a high level of universality despite the serious crises that it has been through. Finally, economic and trade relations between the nations have gone from a purely commercial approach to a decidedly liberal and globalized practice. Multilateralisation of these relations is now dominant and rules, which tend to uniformity, now apply to the majority of Nations. The brand of mercantilism in the work of Vattel is obvious and proceeds from the nature of the international society of the time. The brief overview of Vattel views on trade relationships confirms the idea de son deep commitment to the sovereignty of States. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Emer de Vattel; mercantilism; multinational corporations; non-governmental organizations
