Chapter Summary

It is appropriate, therefore, to sketch the outlines first, to be able to qualify right of embassy, inviolability and immunities according to these notions indispensable operation to understand the place of the Diplomatic Law in the system of law of Vattel. The main difficulty here concerns the determination of the relationship between law people 'natural' and 'voluntary. Vattel admit the principle: "It is impossible to conceive that the intention of the Prince, who sends an ambassador or any other Minister or submits it to the Authority of a foreign power". The original text of the chapter is in French.
