The International Court of Justice in 2013

In 2013 the International Court of Justice decided two cases and made a number of Orders. In that year four new cases were also begun and one case was discontinued. As a result, at the beginning of 2014 there were eleven cases on the Court’s docket. In the various proceedings in 2013 the Court exhibited a high degree of consensus, which is notable since consensus has not always been conspicuous in its activity. A second point is that several contemporary cases stem from decisions made previously by the Court. These demonstrate that valuable as adjudication is, it may sometimes be necessary to return for a second time if a judgment of the Court is to have its fullest effect.
