Background

Since the United Nations was founded in 1945, the various states have drafted several tools to facilitate international law. Several of those international tools are listed here, with a focus on criminal justice and prisoners' rights. Some of these tools are called "basic principals" while others are called "covenants". Generally speaking, principals are advisory, while covenants are binding on the states. The International Court of Justice provides remedies for violations of some of these covenants.
