Chapter 29: Individual
Restricted access

By reviewing how the concept of personality has played out and evolved in international legal thought and practice, this chapter shows how international law has gradually freed itself from a purely inter-State, obsolete outlook, giving increasingly greater emphasis to protected persons and responsibility for the violation of their rights. In doing so, this chapter shows that the international juridical subjectivity of the human being is now well engrained in international law and contributes to the humanization of international law.
