This is an issue with important technical ramifications, namely the relationship between international and domestic law, also known as the "systems report". It is not natural that the problem should arise, it must be understood that international law is not intended to be and is not self-sufficient. To put it simply, and to solve the problem by its fundamental aspect, international law is designed primarily to create common standards, so that we can agree on things in common, we must be able to create common standards. If States encounter particular problems they must be able to create legal certainty through customary practice; the production of norms is essential to international law. If Switzerland has a problem with Indonesia and wants to conclude an agreement with it, it is clear that this agreement cannot be subject to Indonesian law as well as Swiss law, because one would have precedence over the other. We need a public international law that is common to both States and superior to each other. The creation of norms is necessarily at the international level, but at the same time, the implementation and enforcement of these norms will not ordinarily fall within the purview of public international law because there is no global state in which international law would fit so well that there would be higher standards than others.
Section 12 1 of the Amended Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria the Constitution provides that no treaty shall have force of law in Nigeria unless it has been enacted into a law of the National Assembly. This provision has been interpreted by the Supreme Court and scholars, alike, to mean that treaties are only applicable in Nigeria if they are enacted into law by the National Assembly. This interpretation gives the impression that Nigeria is a dualist State. In this sense, the article maintains that the generalised position that undomesticated treaties are not applicable in Nigeria misses the point that treaties sometimes codify customary international law. The position also misses the point that treaty provisions may later become, or form part of, customary international law. In another vein, the article examines provisions of the constitution which, allow the operation of self-executing treaties in Nigeria.
India has traditionally been described as a dualist country in relation to its engagement with international law. Formally at least, the allocation of the power of assumption of international obligations rests with the Executive, while its domestic implementation requires Parliamentary sanction. In this paper, I argue that while India remains formally committed to dualism, in practice it exhibits many monist tendencies. Once international law obligations are assumed, they are transported into domestic law through various channels, not all of which require Parliamentary approval. Further, the Indian judiciary also applies non-domesticated international law obligations in various ways that reflect shades of monism.

Veriana Josepha B. Countries in the world in the activity always in touch and relate with other countries. This causes the applicable national law a country will always be associated also with international law. It spawned two big flow of the relationship between national law and international law, namely the flow of monism sees both national law and international law are two aspects of the same from one system, and the flow of dualism considers that international law and national laws is a two fields laws are different and independent from one another. According to the theory of transformation, the rules of international law to be valid and honored as national norms have to go through the transformation process or over forms, either formally or substantially. Meanwhile, according to the theory of the delegation, the implementation of international law left to the states or the national law of each. So the problem of implementation was delegated to national law.

Monism and dualism were originally conceived as two opposing theorizations of the relationship between international law and domestic law. The subject of considerable debate in the first half of the 20th century, monism and dualism are regarded by many modern scholars as having limited explanatory power as theories because of their failure to capture how international law works within states in practice. Notwithstanding their decline as theories, monism and dualism retain power as analytical tools. They act as consistent starting points for examinations of the relationship between international and domestic law.
Don't have an account? A strictly theoretical treatment of the relation between international law and municipal law is today of the utmost practical importance. While international law is developing at a pace without precedent in past centuries, some danger that the technique of its growth may be impaired by not giving a certain weight to theoretical considerations. This chapter deals with the problem from an analytical, positivist point of view, and, to some extent therefore, it follows the principles of the Austrian school — Hans Kelsen, Josef Kunz, and Alfred Verdross. This is not to say that the conclusions of that school are accepted without question; only their method is followed, and that method represents their most decisive contribution to jurisprudence.
The terms monism and dualism are used to describe two different theories of the relationship between international law and national law. Many states, perhaps most, are partly monist and partly dualist in their actual application of international law in their national systems. Monists accept that the internal and international legal systems form a unity.
