Chapter Summary

This is a contributory article by the author towards a series that speaks about "Careers in International Law" and details three areas that the author encountered in the course of his career. The first being the question of whether newly independent states, which had not participated in creating the rules of international law, should be bound by such rules if the states considered the rules to run counter to their interest. Second, in terms of the peaceful settlement of disputes, the third party dispute settlement has been a firm position that the author has put forward in the context of all law-making treaties. Third, it has long been the conviction of the author that international law, as it has evolved in this era of the United Nations, has come to include several progressive notions, especially under the topics of the law of treaties, state responsibility and international criminal jurisdiction.

Keywords:careers; diplomacy; dispute settlement; International Law; law-making treaties; United Nations
