International Court of Justice

In 2009, the International Court of Justice (icj) delivered three Judgments, made seven Orders, and had 18 contentious cases and one advisory procedure pending before it. Addressing the General Assembly on 29 October, the icj President, Judge Hisashi Owada, noted that during the period from 1 August 2008 to 31 July 2009, the cases before the Court had involved States from nearly all continents—Asia, Europe, North America, Central America and Africa. The universal character of the Court was reflected in the wide range of subjects addressed in those cases, including territorial and maritime delimitation, diplomatic protection, human rights, the status of individuals, international humanitarian law and environmental issues.
