Abstract

International law has encountered many issues in modern era. Nowadays, one of the most important questions against international law is whether it is successful or not. International law is or at least should be a set of law that considers all states as equals and treat each state in this respect. However, international law cannot provide all states’ desires and wished to shape international politics equally. In addition, it is clearly seen that in the structure of the United Nations (UN), states are not equal, and recolonization is pestering the world (Chimni, 2006: 3) through this new system. The presence of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC)and the collaboration of the neo-liberal states obviously disregard the needs and the right to speak of third world countries which constitutes the majority of the UN. This disparity is not only limited to political power but also economic power, for instance, the top three riches people in the world have more money than the poorest countries total GNP and their population of six hundred million (UnitedN ations Development Programme, 1999: 3).
