Due to their international personality, States and international organizations in current legal system are able to bring an international claim as to injuries resulting from breach of obligations. The system in which international law intertwined with it, during its evolutions experiences novel transformations intellectually and virtually. On the one hand, the system is thinking to place human as the ultimate benefit of law, and on the other hand, its hands have tackled with States sovereignty. However, reparation and remedy and directly bringing lawsuit have partially been realized in human rights law and humanitarian law regimes. International system is attempting to cross the impediments which are largely procedural to benefit human from the right of direct filing lawsuit -such as European Union legal system- against States. In this regard, international doctrines have endeavored to enhance the issue. The prominent value in current international system is full remedy and the possibility of bringing lawsuit for human. However, it seems States sovereignty as an impediment in various forms such as immunity with respect to human rights law and humanitarian law breaches are trying to ignore the reparation for related victims in contemporary international law.
