This lecture discusses the influence of international law on the conduct of states. It focuses on two specific and very fully documented incidents that took place during the Second World War, and which provoked strong protests from the Norwegian government. The lecture attempts to identify the severe problems that are involved in establishing the relationship between international law and state action. It concludes by identifying an area of legal theory that has been neglected by scholars: the nature of legal justification in international affairs.

Keywords:   international law, conduct of states, Second World War, problems, state action, legal theory, legal justification, international affairs
