    Prof. Jill Goldenziel rightly argues that international law is there basically to protect interests of weaker states. This may not be always true. In the world of power politics guided by the golden rule ‘might is right’, and in absence of no super-sovereign, international law remains the only resort for the weak nations. International law and international organisations are indeed crucial to promote rule of law and strengthen multilateralism.
