1.2 Substantive Foundations

This Tribunal is not inventing law. It has relied upon the best available experts on the international law of war to ascertain the character of rules applicable to nuclear weapons policy. These experts were cross-examined by trained legal counsel and by the members of the Tribunal itself. To introduce the Judgment, a brief survey is provided of the sources of international law applicable here.
