Chapter Summary

Personality and recognition constitute two of the most central subjects of public international law. On an international plane, states are the most recognised subjects of international law and also have the most recognised rights and duties. The international legal personality and recognition under Islamic international law are achieved by accession to the Islamic system. The legal characterization of state sovereignty or statehood varies considerably in Islamic international law from that of public international law. In the system of public international law, there are two important theories for the existence of a nation. The first emphasizes that a nation consists of a people who have a tendency to live together while the second is of the view that it is common history, race, language, culture, religion and custom(s) which prove the existence of a nation.
