ABSTRACT

The inherent nature of human beings is their unpredictability in terms of behavioural conduct. States, groups and International Organizations, like individuals who constitute members of these social formations suffer from this inmate problem. Therefore, for law to really serve its purposes, a competent and proper body that has a recognized authority must make such law, it should be enforceable. Any law that cannot be enforced is no law. It should be dynamic because society in which it operates is dynamic. It should be consensual, international law is consensual; National law is also consensual. By this fact, it becomes imperative to note that the relationship between the two systems of law is not a relationship of supremacy but a relationship for an aim to bring peace and order to the World as well as to individuals. The  theories propounded by the various schools of thought tilt towards the assertion that the relationship between the two systems of law is one of supremacy which invariably means that Municipal law should concede to the notion that International Law is supreme or International Law should  recognize that Municipal Law  is supreme.  It is only on this basis that recognition of the relationship between the two systems of law will be appreciated. This project varies from the above mention perspective and shows that the relationship between International Law and Municipal law is co-ordinated to meet the demands of the changing world and not based on an assertion of supremacy. This is done by examining the positions of the Monist-Dualists debate.
