AK Anya and Rita A NgwokeAbstract:
Objective: The paper considers the need to revisit man's status in juxtaposition to the international community's response in unrestrainedly and comfortably heralding the concomitant effects of globalisation. To examine and demonstrate by analytical approach efforts made to strengthen the philosophical basis for the recognition of man, first of all as a citizen of the state, and secondly as a subject of international law. Branch of law: International law, Jurisprudence, Constitutional law, Human rights Law and Criminal Law. Philosophical Basis: Natural law, Normative ethics, Positive Law and Constitutional law. Instruments: United Nations Charter and Constitution of the Federal REPUBLIC OF Nigeria, 1999. Findings: The authors conclude that the evolution of international justice imports the philosophy of globalisation of criminal administration and justice. By implication, the past impunity of states from criminal atrocities is henceforth being checked with the establishment of the International Criminal Court. Therefore, this universal perspective operates to support the existence of the recognition of duties of man in international law. Therefore, if a man is a duty bearing subject at international law, he is equally a correct bearing entity.
