An inquiry into the previous history of the Court's involvement with non-governmental organizations shows that neither the PCIJ nor the ICJ were entirely immune to submissions by non-governmental entities before the 1990s. The examination of these submissions and their subsequent treatment by the Court remains extremely fruitful as far as any conceptual framework for the participation of NGOs is concerned. This article first considers the practice of the PCIJ related to non-state organizations (I), before dwelling on the treatment of NGOs by the International Court of Justice from 1947 to 2003 (II) and finally considering the new 'regime' set out by the 2004 Practice Directions (III).
