International law card

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a card or source that justifies the importance of international law? Like, how undermining the law or international treaties  would lead to a collapse of it & global instability,- or something of that nature? Im trying to use this for the new cx topic- anyone have anything?

China's recent denouncement of the Hague's decision concerning the SCS is a nice analytical answer to international law, but as for supporting cards, you may want to base evidence on smaller countries that depend on international law to keep big powers in check.

These are cards that say legitimacy of law is key to stop oppression. I hope it's close to what you need.

 

Government must uphold due process as a fundamental right – key to the legitimacy of the law

Garry, Associate Professor of Law at University of South Dakota School of Law, 12

[Patrick M., February 2012, St. John’s Law Review, http://scholarship.law.stjohns.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1192&context=lawreview, 6-26-15, R.Z.]

The rights to which due process protections also apply relate to the type of fundamental rights that government must respect. 41 These fundamental rights were defined during the constitutional period primarily as "common law property rights, and rights to traditional institutional arrangements and legal procedures." 42 The fact that the rights meant to be protected by the Due Process Clause were only the most basic and fundamental rights is also indicated by the placement of the Fifth Amendment, which follows the First Amendment protection of speech, press, assembly, and religious exercise, 43 the Second Amendment right to bear arms, 44 the Third Amendment limitations on the quartering of soldiers, 45 and the Fourth Amendment protections against search and seizure. 46 Furthermore, the Fifth Amendment precedes the Sixth Amendment right to a free and speedy criminal trial, 47 the Seventh Amendment guaranty of trial by jury, 48 and the Eighth Amendment prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment.49 As with all these enumerated rights protections, the Due Process Clause serves as an additional limitation on the powers of the central government regarding the most fundamental rights of its citizens.

Oppression is inevitable in tyrannical society that ignores due process and privacy

Reicher and Haslam, Professor at University of St. Andrews and Professor at University of Exeter, 06

[stephen and S. Alexander, 2006, The British Journal of Social Psychology, “Rethinking the psychology of tyranny: The BBC prison study “, http://rajprisons.nic.in/Training/PSYCHOLOGY%20OF%20TYRANNY-BBC%20PRISON%20STUDY.pdf, 6-26-15, R.Z.]

In contrast, the results of the BBC prison study suggest that the way in which members of strong groups behave depends upon the norms and values associated with their specific social identity and may be either anti- or prosocial (Jetten, Spears, & Manstead, 1997). However, based on the present data, we would argue that failing groups almost inevitably create a host of problems for their own members and for others. These problems have a deleterious impact on organization, on individuals’ clinical state, and – most relevant here – on society. For it is when people cannot create a social system for themselves that they will more readily accept extreme solutions proposed by others. It is when groups lack the power to exercise choice that an authoritarian ideology that promises to create order for them appears more seductive. In short, it is the breakdown of groups and powerlessness that creates the conditions under which tyranny can triumph (for related arguments see Kanter, 1979; Pfeffer, 1981; Reynolds & Platow, 2003)
