100 Years of International Justice – Time to consider a reform of the International Court of Justice
AbstractThis article critically evaluates the current operational framework of the International Court of Justice. Citing political influence, weak enforcement of due process and other “ambiguities”, the article makes for a provocative piece on this international judicial body. The author scopes the various reform proposals tabled (from the subtle to the more “radical”), espousing those that include reforming: the election process of ICJ judges; the compulsory-jurisdiction of the court; and the relationship between the ICJ and the UN Security Council. She also offers her insight into how the mechanics of reform ought to take effect.
