This chapter discusses the origins and status of the jus cogens theory in international law. It also analyses the distinction between international crimes and international delicts, or in other words between essential and less essential obligations, in terms of its relationship to the distinction between peremptory and ordinary norms. It also highlights the point at which international crimes and jus cogens converge and the point at which they diverge.

Keywords:   jus cogens, international law, international crimes, international delicts, obligations, norms
