Abstract

It is the fact that international law itself does not create States by way of some legislative fiat; rather it merely has a role in acknowledging them which already been put in place. This acknowledgement has usually been given by the existing States to a nascent State, which is known as recognition; comparatively a new branch of international law. In addition to the existing 193 member States of the United Nations, numerous entities such as Palestine, Kosovo, Somaliland and many others demand themselves as States. But they are not enjoying fully their statehood in international intercourse due to lack of recognition and non admission to the international organisations. This article examines whether the recognition can put any impact,if so under what circumstances, on the creation of States under international law.
