The World Court Vol. I

Hardcover
Illustrated edition
(available July 1st 2022)

Recalls the pursuit of the ideal of a World Court from its inception, some seven centuries ago. It then focuses on the Constitutive Phase (1870-1920) of the Court, including the discourse at the Hague Peace Conferences (1899, 1907), that culminated in the adoption of its Statute of the Court in December 1920. The volume recalls the contributions of research bodies like the Institut de droit international (f. 1873) the International Law Association (f. 1873) and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (f. 1889) in the process. It highlights the Draft Statute drawn up by the legendary Advisory Committee of Jurists (ACJ, 1920) and reviews the response and emendations implemented by the political bodies of the League of Nations, its Council and Assembly, at the instigation of the Powers. The volume includes scores of biographies of the jurists and diplomats prominently involved in the process, along with a wealth of diagrams, schemes, drafts and documents. It features extensive chronological and bibliographical sections. In addition, the richly edited illustrated edition is illuminated with hundreds of pictures of prominent jurists, bodies and institutions, and amply draws on the interior decorating of the venue of the Court, the Peace Palace. The text-only edition has an additional supplementary section of drafts and documents.
