This chapter begins with a discussion of the three foundational problems of international law: sovereignty, human rights, and security. It then considers the relations between each of the foundational challenges and one of the norms at the very apex of the international legal system, the prohibition on the use of force. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
