How Can International Law Be Used To Resolve Conflict ?  

The world has seen many terrible wars and heinous crimes committed against humanity. The sad truth is that such terrible acts against humanity have not stopped as of today. International law upholds humanitarian law as one of its focal point, and seeks to resolve conflicts between mankind to establish peace.

Various international courts and judicial systems have been setup to establish a safe international community. Though different countries might be party to different courts according to their allegiance and beliefs, they all seek peace and justice. No matter who causes the conflicts or where the arise, every country wants to resolve issues and re-establish peace and order.

The United Nations uses international law to settle international conflicts peacefully by means of the International Court of Justice (ICJ).  It deals with nations at conflict, and not matters pertaining to individuals. The International Criminal Court (ICC) deals with conflicts and tensions at the individual level.

Europe has two different and distinct court systems, namely the European Court of Justice and the European Courts of Human Rights. The ECJ, or the European Court of Justice, deals with commercial and social issues, while the European Courts of Human Rights (ECHR), associated with the Council of Europe, deals with human rights issues. 

There are many other international courts implementing international law. A court worth mentioning is the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.

All the above courts and councils work to implement international law. By resolving international conflicts, they uphold and reinforce international peace. It helps to maintain freedom and equality of nations, irrespective of their political, social and economical status. It prevents a nation from violating or invading another nation. These courts stress on the belief that any conflict can be and should be resolved peacefully.
