Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the codification and progressive development of international law, as a central point of attention, aiming at drawing lessons from past endeavours to foster the gradual ongoing construction of the new jus gentium of our days. It focuses on the exercise of codification and progressive development of the discipline in historical perspective. The chapter examines the lessons and projections of the codification and progressive development of International Law, moved, as they have been, ultimately by the universal juridical conscience. Codification appears to go hand in hand with progressive development of International Law: if the former does not take account of the latter, it will in all probability not withstand the onslaught of time, of the passing of time. Codification Conventions are bound to be long-lasting if they give expression also to the progressive development of the matter at issue.
