The Creation of States in International Law


Oxford University Press

The word ‘State’ is mentioned thirty-four times in the United Nations (UN) Charter. To be admitted to the UN, an applicant must be a ‘State’. To bring a question concerning international peace and security, or any other dispute, before the UN, it is necessary to be a ‘State’. To be entitled to participate without vote in the UN Security Council's consideration of any dispute, a party to the dispute must be a ‘State’. To become a party to the Statute of the International Court of Justice, an applicant must be a ‘State’. There is thus much opportunity for disagreement about and development of the notion of statehood in UN organs.
