Introduction to International Law

Treaties are sometimes referred to by the place and year of adoption, e.g. the 1969 Vienna Convention. If a State becomes a signatory to such a treaty, it is not bound by the treaty, but it undertakes an obligation to refrain from acts which would defeat the object and purpose of the treaty..

Sovereignty could also be transferred to another State by conquest (use of force) or by cession where the sovereignty over the territory would be ceded by treaty from one State to another..

Genocide is the killing or other acts intended to destroy, in whole or in part, of a national, ethnic, racial or religious group..

States claim jurisdiction under the protective principle, under which a State asserts jurisdiction over acts committed outside their territory that are prejudicial to its security, such as treason, espionage, and certain economic and immigration offences..

Freedom of fishing was a traditional high seas freedom but fishing on the high seas is subject to restrictions as set out in the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea..
