The International Court of Justice is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations and plays a central role in both the peaceful settlement of international disputes and the development of international law. This first ever comprehensive Commentary on the Statute of the International Court of Justice, analyses in detail not only the Statute of the Court itself but also the related provisions of the United Nations Charter as well as the relevant provisions of the Court's Rules of Procedure.

The Commentary provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of all legal questions and issues the Court has had to address in the past and will have to address in the future. It illuminates the central issues of procedure and substance that the Court and counsel appearing before it face in their day-to-day work.

In addition to commentary covering all of the articles of the Statute of the ICJ, plus the relevant articles of the Charter of the United Nations, the book includes three scene-setting chapters: Historical Introduction, General Principles of Procedural Law, and Discontinuation and Withdrawal.

  • The first article by article commentary on the most important court in international law
  • Commentary on the Statute is augmented by commentary on provisions of the UN Charter relating to the Court
  • Four extra chapters add broader context: Historical Introduction, Relationship with Other International Courts and Tribunals, General Principles of Procedural Law and Discontinuation and Withdrawal
