This is the eighteenth 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.
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 Editor's 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 and summaries of (aspects of) decisions rendered by the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia since 1991, the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Hague Peace Conference on Private International Law.
