Constructing an International Court
This chapter takes the reader through four important moments that were key in the creation of the Court as an institution. It briefly outlines the compromises arrived at during the 1899 and 1907 Hague Peace Conferences, the process relating to the creation of the Permanent Court of International Justice (1920–22), and the revisions that led to the inclusion of the International Court of Justice as the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (1945). The principal argument focuses on the project to bring the rule of law to international society, in the form of judicial institutions, and reflects on the compromises made in order to achieve the goal.
