When the United Nations Charter was adopted in 1945, states established a legal ""paradigm"" for regulating the recourse to armed force. In the years since then, however, significant developments have challenged the paradigm's validity, causing a paradigmatic shift. ""International Law and the Use of Force"" traces this shift and explores its implications for contemporary international law and practice.
