Remarks on state sovereignty in light of the Lotus caseExcerpt: International law is based on the sovereignty of states. This sovereignty forms the regulatory principle of that law. In spite of the regular attacks against it by some supporters of the doctrine over recent years, sovereignty still constitutes the basis of law. International law originates from states and ends with states. This is not affected by the fact that it is addressed to individuals, and that individuals have specific, robust rights within states, the best example of which are human rights.

THE FUTURE OF EUROPE THE OPINION OF THE EUROPEAN UNION CIVIL COOPERATION COUNCIL’S MEMBER ORGANISATIONS
While the European Economic Community was characterised by successful economic and social development, the European Union was rather home to crises and unsolved problems. Of these problems and signs of crises, we consider the following to be the most substantial.
A brutal war is being waged in the European Union between the disciples of normality and abnormality, morality and amorality, restricted sovereignty and full subjection, i.e. between nation states and federalists.
The inadequacy of the current European Union is increasingly evident, as the recent story of the tragic vaccine supply mess has also shown. The need to reform it on a new moral, political, social and economic basis is increasingly pressing.
