Recognizing States

Chapter 1 investigates the early practice of state recognition. It reveals that prior to 1815 international legitimacy centered on the notion of state rights, which, given that most states were hereditary monarchies, was taken to imply dynastic rights. There was a general consensus that new states could be formed only with the consent of their legitimate parent sovereign. The ability to take effective control of a territory could not by itself establish legitimate titles to territory.
