International Law: Existence in International Dispute Settlement Efforts as a Symbol of Peace in the International Community

M Waritsul Firdaus F, Radiyatam Mardiah


The settlement of disputes has been a significant concern in the international community since the 20th century. In its early development, dispute resolution could be achieved either peacefully or through the use of force. However, with the growing awareness of the dangers of war and the advancement of weapon technology, the international community has increasingly recognized the importance of peaceful dispute resolution. In the dynamics of its development, international dispute resolution can be distinguished between legal and political disputes. The opinions of international law experts regarding this distinction vary. There is also a middle ground view that states every dispute has its own political and legal aspects. The development of peaceful dispute resolution has been taking place since the Hague Peace Conferences of 1899 and 1907. During these conferences, rules for peaceful dispute resolution between nations were established. International law also regulates the obligations of states to settle disputes peacefully, as stated in the UN Charter. Technological advancements and the existence of official rules from the UN have strengthened the presence of international law in maintaining international peace and security. The obligation of states to settle disputes peacefully and refrain from the use of force is a recognized principle in international law.
