International public order; International rule of law; Evolution of international law.


This work refers to the evolution of international law, fundamentally since the adoption of the San Francisco Charter. The work proposes two fundamental concepts: first, the creation of the rule of international law and the second concept is the existence of an international public order. The International Public Order (IPO) is a minimum legal standard, which has multiple components, and which cannot be exceeded by the subjects of international law, under penalty of their acts being vitiated by
absolute nullity or being a cause of international responsibility. In other words, it is a limit to the action of the subjects of international relations since their activity cannot exceed them because it would violate the Rule of International Law (RIL). This international public order is composed of human rights norms, the principles of international law, norms of international
humanitarian law and environmental norms. In addition, these rules and principles that make up the international public order have specific characteristics that give them originality compared to other rules.
