Chapter 9 (p.216) Conclusion
Humanity's Law

Ruti Teitel

Oxford University Press

This final chapter draws from prior chapters regarding the bases of humanity law to explore the ramifications of this logic for foreign affairs, for conflict, and for the protection of human security. Humanity law puts into motion a comprehensive value system and set of mechanisms and processes. This framework provides the basis for the legitimation of foreign policy decisionmaking. Hence, understanding how a humanity-law-based perspective operates practically should elucidate and contribute to a better understanding of current foreign policy controversies, particularly concerning conflict and security. Indeed, the terms of engagement are now at the heart of political strategy, and have become an independent goal of interventions that are justified along humanity law lines. Lastly, the conclusion seeks to show some of the practical takeaways of the humanity law perspective that prior chapters have articulated.
