Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the influence of the law of diplomatic protection on the development of international human rights law. It explains the legal rules concerning diplomatic protection and discusses its territorial and nationality dimensions. It argues that the law on diplomatic protection has played an important role in setting some benchmarks for the protection of individuals and that the most important element has not only been the international minimum standard itself but the acceptance that this standard prevailed over national law by the mid-1920s.

Keywords: diplomatic protection, human rights law, protection of individuals, international minimum standard, national law, legal rules
