Ella Gorian, Kristina Gorian


The article analyses different interpretations of the norms and principles of international law by subjects of international law, which represent different cultures, makes it impossible to effectively solve the problems, confronting the world community. The clash of civilizations, which the United Nations is trying to solve through the dialogue of the last decade speaks about different for many cultures perception of human values, which is reflected in approaches to the interpretation of the principles of international law. The authors raise the question about the possibility of perception as ideas of problem solution of other, non-Western, i.e., non-Christian cultures, represented by subjects of international law, occupying more and more leading positions in selected regions. The article analyzes the Chinese concept of international law, the basic principles which are used in other Asian countries (India, Thailand, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Indonesia) to regulate international relations among themselves and even with the European states and North America. The authors argue the appropriateness and adequacy of this concept to resolve territorial disputes, the establishment of a sustainable trade and economic relations, the formation of effective legal models of minimization of ethno-cultural conflicts, achievements of civilization harmonization in international legal cooperation.
