The International Court of Justice in 2017
In 2017 the International Court of Justice gave one judgment and made a number of orders. The judgment concerned preliminary objections in a maritime boundary case and the orders provisional measures of protection and the admissibility of certain counter-claims. These cases, although not very numerous, made a useful contribution to the development and application of internal law. In that year also no less than six new cases were begun, and one case was partially discontinued. The new cases were concerned with issues ranging from a land boundary question to compliance with two international law conventions, the revision and interpretation of a judgment, and the detention and trial of a national. The United Nations General Assembly also adopted a resolution requesting an advisory opinion. At the beginning of 2018 there were therefore seventeen cases on the Court's docket. In 2017 the Court also elected five judges to the bench in the regular triennial election.
