  • ISSN : 0256-6060



This article analyses the ways in which the unilateral foreign policy of the United States hinders the development of international law, taking its violation of multilateral agreements like the United Nations Charter as a starting point and moving on to its resistance to signing or ratifying treaties in the most diverse areas, among which, environmental, human rights, the International Court of Justice, military, labour and the Convention on International Treaties.

Este artículo, analiza cómo la política exterior unilateral de Estados Unidos entorpece el desarrollo de una legislación internacional con sus continuas violaciones de acuerdos multilaterales como las convenciones de la ONU y, con su reticencia a ratificar acuerdos en diferentes áreas: medioambiental, Derechos Humanos, Tribunal Internacional de Justicia, asuntos militares, asuntos laborales, la Convención sobre Tratados Internacionales, etc.
