This learning project has resources on the issues surrounding laws applicable between states (and governments), regulating areas such as human rights, international conflicts, international criminal law, etc.
Public International Law (PIL) should be distinguished from Domestic Law (i.e. the law within a single state) and from Private International Law (i.e. the law regulating activities between people, companies or / states that occurs across international borders).
