The role of the states and their functions in the contemporary world is really complex. According to legal theory enumerated by Malcolm Nathan Shaw, each state is a sovereign state and is equal. In principle, International Law operates only at the International level and not within Municipal legal systems. International Law and Municipal Law have traditionally addressed relatively different issues. International Law is largely but not altogether concerned with relation among states; whereas Municipal Law controls relations between individuals within a state and between individuals and the state. It is crucially important to understand the role and the relations that exist between the two and this paper tries to study this rapport for a basic understanding.
