The Contribution of Australia and New Zealand
The first part of this book deals with the general principles relating to international disputes settlement. It starts by looking at the nature of an international dispute in contemporary international law, and by discussing the principles governing the ascertainment of the existence of an international dispute. It then moves on to a consideration of the diplomatic means of an international dispute settlement. The book not only focuses on the peaceful means, but also considers other means, in particular countermeasures. A separate chapter is devoted to the International Court of Justice, enabling in-depth treatment of the issues. The book critically analyses the cases in which Australia and New Zealand have been involved, first as applicants, and then as respondents, thereby assessing the contributions made by these two countries to the development of the law relating to international disputes settlement.
This book provides a full description of the judicial activity of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) during the busiest decade in its 50-year history (January 1, 1987 - December 31, 1996). The introductory chapter provides a basic description of the role and procedures of the ICJ, designed to facilitate a better understanding of its functioning. Actual statistics from the period 1987-1997 are used as examples. Ten chapters contain the scholarly commentaries of thirteen mainly American international lawyers on the twelve Judgements and five Advisory Opinions rendered by the ICJ between 1987 and 1997.
Each commentary describes the facts of a particular case, the arguments of the parties involved and the decision of the ICJ.
Each commentator also gives his personal assessment of the decision reviewed and explains the decision in the light of the Court's earlier jurisprudence and international law.
Every chapter opens with a review of the judicial activity of the ICJ during a given year, using the General List of ICJ cases, pleadings filed, Orders, Judgements and Advisory Opinions issued and hearings held at the Peace Palace to describe the statistics on the docket of the ICJ, the composition of the ICJ (Judges and Judges ad hoc), the regional distribution to States parties in cases before the ICJ, together with a list of the most important ICJ literature. In sum, the book presents `all you ever wanted to know about the World Court' between 1987 and 1997 for both ICJ practitioners and students of international law.
The book includes reprints from the American Journal of International Law as well as new material.

`In April 1996 the ICJ/UNITAR Colloquium on Increasing the Effectiveness of the Court brought together from all corners of the world judges, legal advisers, practitioners of international law and jurists. It provided an unprecedented opportunity for an in-depth and detailed exchange of views not only on the Court's performance to date, but also on its future role, as well as on possible ways and means of enhancing its operation. There were some fifteen panels, covering subjects ranging from the Court's jurisprudence to its working methods, from assessment of its achievements to evaluation of its ability to handle issues arising from space exploration and the growing concern for the environment. All in all, it was a most comprehensive approach to the subject. This publication, which presents the papers delivered at the Colloquium and the discussions which took place around them, accordingly constitutes instructive reading for all who are concerned with the management and peaceful resolution of disputes. I hope for its widest possible dissemination.'
From the Foreword by Kofi A. Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations.
The popularity of his monumental and definitive works have established Shabtai Rosenne as the undisputed expert on the International Court of Justice’s law and practice.
The fiftieth anniversary of the United Nations and of the International Court of Justice has provided the author with the opportunity and the incentive to re-examine his previous writings about the Court. His broad exchange of correspondence and extensive conversations with members of the Court and its Registrars, as well as with other friends who know the Court and its practices well, led him to undertake this major reconstruction of this work.
Now divided into several substantive volumes, the work addresses
· The Court as one of the principal organs, and as the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. Diplomats and legal advisers who have to deal with matters relating to the Court on a political level, in different organs of the United Nations and in other offices will appreciate the full discussion of the diplomatic, political, and administrative aspects of the Court’s affairs.
· Jurisdiction and the treatment of jurisdictional matters by the Court. This volume also includes the Court’s advisory jurisdiction; the advisory work has related to very difficult legal issues in matters of major political import.
· The Court’s procedure.
All of these arenas have undergone significant recent changes.
The work’s practical features include the English text of the Charter of the United Nations, the Statute of the Court, and the 1978 Rules of the Court, together with a full set of indexes.
The Third Edition of The Law and Practice of the International Court is an essential component of all international law libraries and an indispensable work for those practicing in the field, all of whom will appreciate access to the most recent work on the Court from this expert author.

50th Anniversary of the International Bar Association
Editor: J. Ross Harper
The rule of law is essential to peace, and to the development and realisation of human rights. The practice of law is a privilege, but one that carries the heavy responsibility of ensuring respect for the law. In an interdependent world, lawyers must communicate and interact amongst themselves and with others, both at the national and international levels. The International Bar Association, as a professional body with a long and distinguished record of achievement, plays an important role in this respect.
Written by eminent practitioners and jurists, this volume of essays marks the occasion of the Association's 50th anniversary. It takes as its theme the concept of the globalisation of the law, offering an in-depth and forward-looking analysis of a wide range of topics, among them: - the role of the lawyer in the information society, - the future of multidisciplinary practices, - the future of the foreign legal practitioner, - the role of law in economic development and the fight against corruption, and - the role of the lawyer in the UN. The preeminence of the International Bar Association in the practice, the milestone occasion marked by this work, the expertise of the authors, and the significance of the theme addressed all make Global Law in Practice a work of lasting import.

Its Future Role After Fifty Years
This is the third volume in the series by the Leiden Journal of International Law dealing with the Decade of International Law and International Dispute Settlement. In this book, the 50th anniversary of the International Court of Justice is commemorated. Its past and future role is examined from various angles which have been defined as roles played by the Court. First and foremost, its role as a mechanism for the settlement of disputes is examined. The analysis goes beyond the traditional frontiers of disputes between states and also explores the possibilities of granting international organizations and individuals access to the Court. The second role that is looked into is its supervisory role, or, in other words, its possible role as supreme court in international law. Thirdly, the Court in its advisory function is examined. The last role that is focused upon is the Court in its role as developer of rules of international law. The book ends with a conclusion from both a legal and a political perspective.

This is the eighth volume of the Hague Yearbook of International Law, which succeeds the Yearbook of the Association of Attenders and Alumni of the Hague Academy of International Law.
The title Hague Yearbook of International Law reflects the close ties which have always existed between the AAA and the City of The Hague with its international law institutions, and indicates the Editors' intention to devote attention to developments taking place in those international law institutions, viz. the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal and the Hague Conference on Private International Law.
This volume contains in-depth articles on these developments (in English and French) and summaries of (aspects of) decisions rendered by the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal.
