Despite claims to the contrary, and to paraphrase Mark Twain’s famous quip, the rumours of cus- tomary law’s death have been greatly exaggerated – customary international law remains alive and well. Not only is it one of the formal sources of international law, but its importance is underlined by the fact that rules of customary international law cover all areas of international law, are usually binding on all states and continue to be valid law even if they are codified in treaty texts.
