Beginning with the spring days of the Peace of Westphalia in 1648 until present day geography has had a major impact on the way international law overlooks the notions of statehood, territory and space as a whole. The aim of the article is to analize the correlation between geography and international law throughout history and the impact that one has had over the other. The author takes a closer look at the issues integrated in the structure of the development of international law and the current challenges that it has been presented. The first part of the article examines the embodiment of geography in the structure of the international law and the historic approach in the development of the law as such. The second part attempts to break down the underlying principles of law and the space for criticism it offers. The third part will observe the modern-day challenges the international law faces and finally the author will touch upon the reasons that the international law fails to cope up with the challenges mentioned above. There is an increasing number of scholars that identify geography as a European subject. (Edward Soja, 1980, 225) During the process of extension from the known world to its peripheries, both geography and development have gone hand in hand in order to bring contributions to the mutual improvement. This has brought geography to shape its focus and role in the structure of the present times. ” Geography was not merely engaged in discovering the world; it was making it.” (David N. Livingstone, 1992, 168) The main concern of the initial steps made in the field of international law was the intricacy between society and the land it has posessed. Thus, the population of a certain “previously uknown” territory had to follow or carry the patterns of the “civilized, Western political organization”, (Gerrit W. Gong, 1984, 88) if they were to be recognized by the other states.
