THE PRINCIPLE OF SOVEREIGNTY AND NON-INTERFERENCE IN INTERNAL AFFAIRS IN THE EVENT OF KOSOVO'S SECESSION FROM YUGOSLAVIA

Sajmir Bata

Abstract


The sovereignty of the state is not only important for the states, but it is also of considerable importance in international law. The absolute sovereignty of the state would be weakened because the domestic state policies were becoming aggressive against their citizens, but it should be noted that this weakening was also influenced by the development of international law based on universal rights. The concept of absolute sovereignty of the state was already very outdated in international law, and would be replaced by the terms 'limited sovereignty' from universal human rights and freedoms.

Keywords: State sovereignty, limited sovereignty, international law, humanitarian intervention, United Nations, Bill Clinton, collective security.
