Abstract

Among all the legal questions posed by the Iraq Inquiry, the one that most urgently needs an answer relates to the way international lawyers should look at the interpretation of the purported legal basis used by the UK to attack and invade another sovereign state in 2003. With regard to this critical issue, the different legal approaches to the relevant UN Security Council resolutions should be assessed by previously revisiting their legal nature as exceptions to a fundamental international rule.
