The principle of non-intervention by States in the international order
This principle has two distinct parts: a corollary to the prohibition of the use of force, which includes extensions in political relations and applies to other forms of coercion. The other principle is the protection of a reserved area.
I. The use of coercion
This constraint is likely to cause the invalidity of a treaty, whether it is exercised by an armed intervention or threat thereof. The choice of a political regime can be constrained.
In the case of the Straits of Corfu, UK v. Albania, the International Court of Justice had was forced to decide on the unilateral intervention of the UK. This has been interpreted as a political force that could not find any place in the international order. The International Court of Justice condemns this armed intervention of a State which deals out justice itself by acting directly on another territory. This is clearly prohibited, particularly by the UN Charter. One might wonder if the prohibition stands for unarmed constraints.
The principle of non-intervention is contained in Articles 2 and 7 of the UN Charter but exists only within the framework of the United Nations. This raises questions about its scope, the question of the limits of the reserved-state area where it is prohibited that other states intervene where there are also no standards that govern the behavior of a State.
