This dissertation will seek to illustrate the importance of the principle of non-intervention in protecting state sovereignty, which is a fundamentally important aspect of international law and the wider international system. It will only look at situations other than the use of force, as this aspect of the principle has become outdated and is in desperate need of reform. Frequently, the principle is flouted by states looking to unduly influence other states and intervene in their domestic jurisdiction. Consequently, this dissertation shall conclude with proposals for reform of the principle in order to better protect this crucial aspect of non-intervention.
