This chapter examines the effectiveness of the International Court of Justice (ICJ). It assesses the goals of the ICJ and the factors controlling judicial outcomes. A predominant goal of the ICJ is to represent the idea of legality in international relations and the aspirations of the international legal profession as to the transformative effects of international adjudication — in law enforcement, in law development, and in legitimating law and institutions. If so, the record of the Court's resilience and durability, together with the fact that judges, states, and scholars continue to subscribe to and express shared beliefs as to its goals and actual functioning, attest to the its considerable success in embodying and projecting the promise of international adjudication.

Keywords:   international courts, court effectiveness, goal-based model, judicial outcomes, international adjudication
