Abstract

International law permits one state to use force against another state only in certain narrowly defined situations. A state may use force in selfdefense in the event of an "armed attack" by another state. Additionally, treaties may give a state the right to use force in designated situations. Apart from these exceptions, however, the prohibition against the use of force is quite strict.
