The International Court of Justice in 2012
In 2012 the International Court gave four judgments and an advisory opinion. Consequently, at the end of the year there were ten cases on its docket. The Court’s work in 2012 presents a cross-section of the types of disputes for which judicial settlement is suitable, being made up of an advisory opinion concerned with the employment rights of an international civil servant, the immunities of a state under customary international law, compensation following an exercise of diplomatic protection, the interpretation of treaty obligations relating to criminal jurisdiction and a dispute over territory and maritime delimitation. While there are, of course, other kinds of disputes that states take to the Court their readiness to resort to adjudication on these and similar matters is a clear endorsement of its value.
