    what is customary international law


    Customary international law refers to unwritten, widespread practices and norms that are accepted as binding by the international community. It evolves from the consistent and general behavior of states, reflecting a shared sense of legal obligation. Unlike treaties, customary law is not explicitly codified but emerges over time through consistent state practices driven by a belief in legal obligation (opinio juris). This dynamic body of law plays a crucial role in shaping global norms and governing interactions between states in areas where treaties may be absent or incomplete.
