Abstract:     
This essay identifies the reality of private rights, duties, and participation in the international legal process. Awareness of various forms of private individual, group, and institutional participation can help to avoid false myth and guide realistic inquiry concerning identification and clarification of private rights, duties, and competencies and forms of private participation in normative formation and sanction processes. Clearly, international law has not been merely the province of the “state.”
