Example text

Finally, as a result of the greater acceptance of the right of other independent states to exist there emerged the growth of accepted diplomatic practices and procedures for state-level contact. These consequences in themselves are certainly not negative. As discussed in this chapter’s earlier sections the recognition of sovereignty up to the signing of the UN Charter was contingent on the whims of the powerful and thus less a legal right than a function of power and/or patronage. Aggressive states have historically proved unwilling to adhere to the notion of sovereign equality and inviolability even after the UN Charter.

Whether it should be thus is a different, arguably more salient, issue. The dispute regarding legality stems from the rights afforded to sovereign states under the UN Charter, specifically the notions of inviolability and equality and the powers vested in the Security Council under Chapter VII. The latter part of this chapter has sought to highlight the progressive aspect of the codification of sovereignty, an aspect which has been largely ignored in contemporary critiques of this aspect of international law.
