This paper considers international law in relation to domestic law by analyzing to what extent international law constrains states in their actions and how it applies in different ways to different states. It looks at how international law is concerned with the regulation of the behavior of states not individuals while in domestic law, individuals are the principle legal subjects.

From the Paper:

"Under most domestic legal systems the legal subjects, that is the citizens, enjoy considerable freedoms in private transactions. One can enter into agreements with others, create companies or associations and undertake many other actions. However this contractual freedom is not without constraints. Transactions cannot be made that contravene public order or some form of moral standards - they will be declared null and void. Every domestic system has a set of values that cannot be ignored by individuals, even when engaging in private transactions."
