Nezabitovsky is best known for his study of international law and his conception of a global law versus an international law, in the sense of law between nations. Global law or general / omnisocial law meant to protect an individual against allegiance to a given government or state. Omnisocial law was thus one of the first manifestations of international human rights law. Nezabitovsky's saw international law as merely the protection of state's rights vis a vis other states. Omnisocial law was meant to act as a limit on international law.
