The changes in international community since 1945 have led to fundamental
disputes on the sources of international law, in particular, the notion of the
United Nation General Assembly Resolution to be a source of international
law in comparison to the traditional sources as stated in article 38(1)
International Court of Justice Statute. The fact that the existed sources are
not able to maximize the role of international law in maintaining peace and
security in the world would be an essential trigger to have a preliminary
discussion on the issue. This paper attempts to identify to what extend the
possibility of UNGAR to be a source of international law in conformity with
the principle of democracy and justice.
