An Overview Of International Law

International law is comprised of a collection of regulations, laws, and policies, which operate to regulate the actions and behaviors of countries throughout the world. International law governs nations in regard to international relationships and domestic concerns. For instance, international law has established accepted standards through which different countries interact and associate with each other. In addition, this branch of law has created civil rights standards, which nations are expected to adhere to when addressing civil concerns, including human rights. International law is regulated by the United Nations. There has been extensive controversy and debate regarding international law and the success of the United Nations, as international law is extremely difficult to enforce. However, international law has been effective in establishing recognized standards for human and civil rights, child labor laws, and environmental laws.
