Washington Law Review


David A. Colson


This essay has three parts. The first part discusses several ways states invoke international law which provide the opportunity for a persistent objector to make its views known. The second part, following the second part of Ted Stein's essay, addresses the formation of customary law and the legal relationships between States and the means by which objections to the formation of such law may be made. The third part suggests that any answer to the question of "how persistent must the persistent objector be" must take into account the context in which the principle is applied.
