Public international law is primarily the "law of nations," i.e., the rules that govern relations among nations.  However, beginning in the 19th century public international law expanded to include quasi-governmental organizations (such as the International Committee of the Red Cross).  In the twentieth century public international law expanded to include intergovernmental organizations such as the League of Nations and the United Nations, and non-governmental organizations like Doctors Without Borders.
