About the Authors
  • This multi-author text offers a critical review of the work of the International Court of Justice, and its relations with the political organs of the United Nations, during the past fifty years. Its purpose is to draw together the reflections of the most eminent international judges, practitioners and academics in the field of public international law, on the way that the Court has handled the matters put before it. No other text has such a distinguished team of specialist contributors, or the comprehensive coverage of this volume.

    • Written by a group of the world's leading international practitioners, judges and scholars in international law
    • First major critical assessment of the Court's work after fifty years of its existence by an international group of experts
    • Skilfully edited and structured to address both the substantive work of the Court, its procedure and place within the United Nations system

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The honor paid to Sir Robert Jennings, former Whewell Professor at Cambridge, lately judge and most recently president of the Court, is well-deserved. And there are enough fine essays in the book, on a variety of topics, to make it altogether suitable for a university or office library." International Journal on World Peace

    "As a comprehensive, scholarly reflection on the International Court of Justice, Fifty Years of the International Court of Justice excels." Dana M. Caudle, Journal of Government Information
