TO BE CHANGED Hegel believed that civil society and the state were polar opposites, within the scheme of his dialectic theory of history. The modern dipole state–civil society was reproduced in the theories of Alexis de Tocqueville and Karl Marx.

Public International Law
Private International Law or Conflicts of Laws
The Law of Supranational Organizations
