Recognized Jus Cogens by the Republic of Somers

JUS COGENS
Jus Cogens, latin for compelling law, also known as Peremptory Norms, are the norms that all sovereign states are expected to respect. A nation cannot stand as sovereign if in violation of these norms, in Somers' eyes.

Somers recognizes these Peremptory Norms.
- Prohibition of Aggressive Wars
- Prohibition of Crimes Against humanity
- Prohibition of War crimes
- Prohibition of Maritime piracy
- Prohibition of Genocide
- Prohibition of Apartheid
- Prohibition of Slavery
- Prohibition of Torture

These norms can and should be built upon by international consensus.
