The International Court of Justice

Hugh Thirlway


Article 59 of the Statute of the International Court of Justice limits the force of each decision of that court to the parties and to the particular case. It has, however, become common knowledge that the jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has made substantial contributions to the establishment and development of international law in a number of fields. A comprehensive study of the International Court of Justice, this book explains all aspects of this increasingly significant legal body, including an overview of the Court’s composition and its operation, its jurisdiction, its procedure, and the nature and impact of its jurisprudence.
