(p.1) 1 Prologue
Diplomatic Protection

Chittharanjan F. Amerasinghe

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a brief history and definition of diplomatic protection. The law relating to diplomatic protection emerged as part of international law long after the Peace of Westphalia (1648), which gave birth to the nation State and modern international law. It was only during the early part of the 19th century that the institution of diplomatic protection asserted itself in the field of international law and jurisprudence. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented. The chapter also describes important sources and references used in this book.
