  • International Law's Role On State Behavior
    755 words
    Response Paper #1 The reading materials in Week 6 explore the impact of international law on states, and more specifically, state behaviors. The idea is not to oversimplify the influence of international law but to understand in what circumstances (under various theories) would the legal framework and rules of international society shape and limit the behavior of nations and their alternatives. And these include many scenarios that constitute a change in state behavior - such as abstaining from ...
  • International Protection Of Universal Individual Human Rights
    5,118 words
    The question of the role of individuals in international law is closely bound up with the rise in the international protection of human rights. This theory maintains that individuals constitute only the subject-matter of intended legal regulation. Only states, and possibly international organizations, are subjects of the law. This has been a theory of limited value. The essence of international law has always been its ultimate concern for the human being and this was clearly manifest in the Natu...

    625 words
    The Balance of Power Theory The most critical and obvious feature of international affairs is its state of anarchy. The international stage features many indecent actors each seeking their own best interest and security. With no sovereign body to govern over these actors it would seem that the system would never be capable of attaining any control. However this is not the reality of the system, we have seen in history that it is possible to restrain the players. It is said to be as a result of t...

The rules of international law are of a normative character, that is, they prescribe towards conduct, and are potentially designed for authoritative interpretation by an international judicial authority and by being capable of enforcement by the application of external sanctions. The Internati...

    Security Committee Topic A: Disarmament of Paramilitary Groups in the Former Yugoslavia Argentina The Committee on Disarmament and International Security has taken upon the task of disarming paramilitary groups in Yugoslavia. It is important that we examine states' policies toward disarmament and prevention of the proliferation of light weapons.

  • International Waters States Security
    1,423 words
    From the ashes of World War One rose one of the prominent political theories in international relations. It began as a counter to the idealist theorists who were more concerned with focusing on understanding the reasons for war in an effort to find a solution for its being. Realism rests itself on three fundamental principles; statism, survival and self help. While these cornerstones create a very strong case for realism and one that I believe is a very viable theory, they also have holes in the...
  • Approaches Of A State's Security
    806 words
    State Security is probably the most important issue when dealing with international relations. State security is the main focus of any move made by a state in the political arena. One definition from one of the approaches of a state's security "is the state's capacity to protect its boundaries and its sovereign ability to act as it sees fit" (TCJM, pp. 62-63). When considering the above definition from the realist approach I would have to disagree. I feel that there is more that needs to be cons...
  • International Institutions Help States
    1,199 words
    Anarchy is seen as one end of the spectrum whose other end is marked by the presence of a legitimate and competent government. International politics is described as being spotted with pieces of government and bound with elements of community.

Although far from peaceful, international politics falls ...
