The International Court of Justice (ICJ) and its League of Nations predecessor the Permanent Court of International Justice (PCIJ) have played a major role in the development of international law for most of the past century. Here for the first time is a comprehensive practical guide to this influential body of international jurisprudence, with cases grouped by topic and thoroughly cross-referenced.

The study provides detailed summaries of, and commentaries on, 186 judgments and advisory opinions, highlighting significant points of law and outcomes that remain crucial for an understanding of ongoing world events. The cases cover such topics of continuing importance as the following and much more:

  • diplomatic protection;
  • trans-border armed actions;
  • legality of use of force;
  • territorial and boundary disputes;
  • immunities of States and State officials
  • asylum;
  • mandated and trust territories and self-determination of peoples;
  • water rights;
  • procedural issues.

Lawyers, jurists, legal academics, and policymakers everywhere will welcome this volume as a cornerstone resource for reference and use in a wide variety of cases with cross-border elements.
