About History of International Law
To understand international law as it exists today, it is crucial to contextualize its evolution and development. Modern international law practices have grown out of centuries of war, diplomacy, and international relations. Meanwhile, the concept of international law in general traces its foundations even further back to the historical politics, trade practices, and military endeavors of ancient civilizations.
