Governmental Illegitimacy in International Law

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides a general overview of the legal issues involved in the recognition of governments. It discusses aspects of recognition doctrine and describes the international law of internal armed conflict, highlighting the legal effects of a decision by the international community to accord or withhold from an armed faction the status of a recognized government. Finally, it outlines the United Nations mechanisms that potentially enable the international community collectively to articulate rules and practices coherent enough to constitute a body of law in this area.

Keywords:   recognition, recognition doctrine, international law, internal armed conflict, United Nations
