This book is an updated version of the General Course on public international law given by the author in French at the Hague Academy of International Law in 1988. It provides an outline of the Law of Nations in a perspective that focuses on its application and development through domestic courts and other `legal actors'. It is based on the idea that international law is no longer the exclusive province of diplomats but must evolve under the guidance of all State organs charged with applying the law.
