This chapter attempts to bring international law back to the table when current crises are addressed in international forums. Given the crisis-inherent urgency and complexity of the problems, a core consensus on the role of international law needs to be established. In essence, international law derives its right to exist from its mandate to protect human dignity. This mandate cannot be suspended in times of crisis. Only its focus will temporarily shift from substantial guarantees to a more process-oriented model of securing participation and inclusion in decision-making.

Keywords:   international law, crisis, international forum, human rights, process-orientated model, participation, inclusion
