This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. Using the collective system envisaged in the UN Charter as a paradigm, the book aims to provide a systematic view of the rules governing the use of force in international law. It is dedicated to the collective use of force within the framework of the Charter, whose ambitious project is based on the premise that armed force can be resorted to exclusively in the common interest. The book describes the collective security system as envisaged in the Charter. It deals with the use of force by States either individually or jointly. Considering the magnitude of recent developments, the book deals with the use of force in the related fields of international terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.
