The iron cage of sovereignty-based international law loosened its power significantly in the twentieth century. A range of entities—States, international organisations, peoples, individuals, transnational corporations, etc.—presently participate in international law, as do indigenous peoples and minority groups. This flexibility is reflected only to a limited extent in current articulations of sources of international law. The entities do not all participate in the same way: State rights are not the same as rights for individuals; rights and duties of organisations are linked to the specifics of their mandates; rights of peoples are not the same as rights of minorities. This chapter discusses the UN Charter, general aspects of self-determination, general aspects of human rights and international action in support of human rights.
