List of International Court of Justice cases

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of contentious cases and advisory opinions brought to the International Court of Justice since its creation in 1946. As of 2 November 2014, 161 cases have been entered onto the General List for consideration before the court.

The jurisdiction of the ICJ is limited. Only states have standing to bring a compulsory claim against another state, and then only with the consent of the responding state. However, certain United Nations bodies and agencies such as the UN General Assembly have the power to submit questions for advisory opinions.[1][2] Although these advisory opinions are not binding under international law, they do provide the ICJ's interpretation of what international law is.[3]

The list is organized by and includes only those disputes assigned a General List number by the registrar of the court. In the early days of the court, any formally correct application was accepted by the registrar and entered on to the General List.[4] If there was no jurisdiction (because of lack of consent by the responding party), the case was soon ordered removed by the court. In 1978, however, the Court amended its rules and instructed the registrar to only enter a case on the General List if there was consent by the responding party,[5] seemingly reducing the problem of meritless applications.[6] However, at times consent and therefore jurisdiction is contested by the responding party. Such a case may be ordered to be added to the General List over the protestations of the respondent to allow the court to decide whether there is consent.[7] In such a situation, however, the mere addition of a dispute to the General List does not have legal significance.[8]

However, it is posted under the ICJ website with the rest of the Corfu Channel Case materials, which are generally marked as General List Number 1. In subsequent cases with judgments on preliminary objections, the Court seems to have assigned the preliminary judgement the same General List Number as the original case to which it belongs, see, e.g. Certain Phosphate Lands in Nauru. Judgment on Preliminary Objections. 26 June 1992; Aerial Incident of 10 August 1999, Judgement on Preliminary Objections. 21 June 2000; etc.
