Course-focused and comprehensive, the Textbook on series provide an accessible overview of the key areas on the law curriculum. International law deals primarily with the rights and duties of states, but has increasingly become concerned with the rights and duties of non-state actors in the international arena. These non-state actors now play an important role in international relations and influence the development and application of international law. They range from individuals to ethnic groups, international organisations such as the United Nations, pre-independent territorial entities, and multinational corporations. This chapter examines the concepts of personality, statehood, and recognition in international law. It discusses some of the problems arising in international and national law in the context of recognition of foreign states, governments, and international organisations. It also reflects on the constitutive theory of international personality and the effects of non-recognition in the United Kingdom.
