At the end of century, we have the privilege to witness the process of humanization of international law, which today encompasses also this aspect of consular relations. In the confluence of these latter with human rights, the subjective individual right to information on consular assistance, of which are titulaires all human beings who are in the need to exercise it, has crystallized: such individual right, situated in the conceptual universe of human rights, is supported today by conventional international law and by consuetudinary international law.
