Calvo Doctrine

The principle set forth by an Argentine jurist, Carlos Calvo, that a government has no duty to compensate ALIENS for losses or injuries that they incur as a result of domestic disturbances or a civil war, in cases where the state is not at fault, and, therefore, no justification exists for foreign nations to intervene to secure the settlements of the claims made by their citizens due to such losses or injuries.
