Abstract

How well or how poorly citizens fare within the borders of their state used to be a no-go area for others to interfere with. But the notion of sovereign equality as the foundation of the international legal order is showing ever more creaks and squeaks. This is a direct result of the increasing polical and legal value attributed to human equality across the globe.

Keywords: international law, sovereign equality, human equality, human rights, inequality, international rule of law
