9780199692996: The Statute of the International Court of Justice: A Commentary (Oxford Commentaries on International Law)

The International Court of Justice is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations and plays a central role in both the peaceful settlement of international disputes and the development of international law. This comprehensive Commentary on the Statute of the International Court of Justice, now in its second edition, analyses in detail not only the Statute of the Court itself but also the related provisions of the United Nations Charter as well as the relevant provisions of the Court's Rules of Procedure. Five years after the first edition was published, the second edition of the Commentary embraces current events before the International Court of Justice as well as before other courts and tribunals relevant for the interpretation and application of its Statute.

The Commentary provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of all legal questions and issues the Court has had to address in the past and will have to address in the future. It illuminates the central issues of procedure and substance that the Court and counsel appearing before it face in their day-to-day work.

In addition to commentary covering all of the articles of the Statute of the ICJ, plus the relevant articles of the Charter of the United Nations, the book includes three scene-setting chapters: Historical Introduction, General Principles of Procedural Law, and Discontinuation and Withdrawal. The second edition of the Commentary adds two important and instructive chapters on Counter-Claims and Evidentiary Issues.

The combination of expert editors and commentators, and their assessment of new developments in the important work of the ICJ, make this a landmark publication in the field of international law.

Review:


"It has no equivalent as regards to its comprehensive treatment of the topic, nor with respect to the great number of authors involved (and their overall unrivalled credentials). It is therefore likely that the book will remain one of the must-have research tools for academics in the field and practitioners alike." --Pierre-Emmanuel Dupont, Chinese Journal of International Law


"This is the sort of book that delights the reader in the sense that he or she need not search anywhere for further information, as all that there is to be said on the ICJ Statute is largely contained here. It is not simply the wealth of information that is important, but the degree of legal analysis that is coupled with references to practice... Overall, this is one of the richest treaty commentaries I have read for some time. The wealth of information and analysis is such that the reader need not search anywhere for a more elaborate insight. A monumental work for the benefit of current and future generations of international lawyers."-Ilias Bantekas, International and Comparative Law Quarterly
