Even countries misbehave sometimes, especially on issues like war, security and protection of territories. When they do, public international law intervenes. Traditionally, these laws were enforced against a country by other States, however in modern times, the law has developed to allow other participants to seek its protection, such as private bodies, individuals and international organisations. To enforce these rights there needs to be a source of law that binds the country, such as a fundamental principle, Treaty or Declaration that countries agree to.
