Introduction of the Exhibit:
“FUNCTIONS OF THE COURT"
The International Court of Justice (ICJ), also known as the “World Court”, is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. It was established by the UN Charter, signed on 26 June 1945 at San Francisco, in order to fulfill one of the primary goals of the United Nations: “to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace.”
The seat of the ICI is at the Peace Palace in The Hague, The Court is open to all UN Member States, as well to certain UN bodies.
The ICJ has a twofold role: first, to settle, in accordance with international law, legal disputes submitted to it by States (contentious cases) and, second, to give advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by dully authorized UN organs and agencies of the system (advisory proceedings).
The Court is composed of 15 judges. The Court’s official languages are French and English.
The ICI began work in 1946, when it replaced the Permanent Court of International Justice (PCI) which had been established in 1920 under the auspices of the League of Nations, had its seat in the Peace Palace and was dissolved after the Second World War.”
