Abstract

Customary international law can be general or particular. In the Navigational and Related Rights case, handed down in 2009, the International Court of Justice decided that a bilateral custom had arisen between Nicaragua and Costa Rica concerning the right to fish of the inhabitants of the two banks for subsistence purposes. The way the Court established such a right raises certain questions about the nature of custom, the process to assess it, the subjects considered, and the standard necessary to prove it.
