Dialogue between international law and international relations, the stepsisters
Discussions on the relationship between International Law and International Relations is an old issue that has already taken place at the end of the XIX century, even before, being an example of it Stephen's essay International Law and International Relations (1884). This text intensively intends to highlight how much these two disciplines are interrelated, also underlining questions that apparently separate one from another. This work is a modest contribution to this interesting and eternal debate. The author presents an essay of thoughts that wants to destroy the apparent dichotomy between International Law and International Relations. He presents an optimistic view on how these two disciplines can get along, finding the terms in common but conserving both their uniqueness and action capacity.Current international questions as Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq need an explanation. Those involved in their analysis cannot missed the discussion of thoughts and ideas that might bring some light to the understanding on the way states and their governments ride two horses, namely International Relations and International Law.
