In 1998, the City of The Hague commemorated its 750th anniversary. To emphasize the fact that The Hague has been an international judicial center of activities for the past decades, a special International Law Conference was organized by the T.M.C. Asser Instituut in co-operation with the 'Stichting 750 jaar Den Haag'.

The programme of The Hague's 750th Anniversary International Law Conference concentrated on the following main themes: international criminal law, interstate dispute settlement, international commercial arbitration, international humanitarian law, private international law and the regulation of international trade.

Within this framework, a number of panels were especially devoted to aspects of 'The Hague, Legal Capital of the World', i.e., concerning the International Court of Justice, the (future) International Criminal Court and the Iran--US Claims Tribunal. Leading experts as well as representatives of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the various international institutions based in The Hague participated in the programme. This publication is intended for anyone interested in an analysis of the law and practice in these institutions.
