This volume of documents relates to the legal aspects of the international crisis arising out of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in August 1996. It opens with a substantial section of documents dealing with the international status of both Iraq and Kuwait, to the evolution of their boundaries and to earlier episodes pertinent to the major events. It is followed by sections of documents presenting the fundamentals of the conflicting views on the situation, and a chapter containing relevant United Nations documents, together with extracts from the debates leading up to the resolutions adopted by the Security Council. The collection next covers specific problems that have arisen in the UN context, such as the adoption and implementation of the sanctions system, and concludes with the response of other international organizations.
