Chapter Summary

This chapter proposes an interpretation of modern international law that led to discuss the colonial origins of international law and to nuance the idea of a right of the whole people built to dominate the world and entirely on the distinction between Europeans and non Europeans. Conversely there emerges a right double potential of emancipation and discipline the behavior of states is obvious. It is proposed to develop this perspective through three points. The first is to confirm that the colonial question was indeed present in the 18th century in Europe. The second point is duplicated and suggests that, with regard to the right people, the colonial question was, however, very marginal and the object of the law was different. The third point is from this rereading about the customs of international law and the history of this law.

Keywords: international law; colonial origins; 18th century; Europeans
