Chapter Summary

The Islamic system of international criminal law has considered the declaration of war as constituting one of the most important elements within the institution of armed conflicts. Islamic international criminal law recognises self-defence as the natural and legal right of an individual, group and state. The principle of proportionality constitutes a valuable principle of Islamic law and must always be respected by Muslims in their social conduct. The principle of self-determination under Islamic international criminal law constitutes one of the most helpful principles for the development of international equality between all nations struggling for their inalienable right of independence. The system of Islamic international criminal law has recognised the institution of humanitarian help when necessary in order to give particular assistance to a nation which has become the object of criminal operations by another regime.

Keywords: humanitarian help; international equality; Islamic international criminal law; self-determination; social conduct
