This study is concerned with the development and application of legal norms to situations of civil strife. It also deals in a less intensive way with problems of adjustment of these norms when the systeme changes. It begin with the development of the norm of belligerent recognition prior to the American Civil War, and its acceptance as opinio juris during that war. The model attempts to be predictive, if not as to what can be be excepted in each particular future internal war, at least as to what the broad outlines of a future international law of civile strife may be. Attempt is made to give a preliminary answer to the question as to what is suitable for, appropriate to, and even required to meet the demands of prevailing international systeme.
