The World Court Digest continues the Fontes Iuris Gentium, a series that presents the decisions of the Permanent Court of International Justice and the International Court of Justice up to 2000. The new volume covers the period from 2001 to 2005. All important pronouncements of the Court in its judgments and advisory opinions are systematically arranged under specific topics taken from substantive and procedural international law. The World Court Digest provides reliable access to the decisions of the most significant international judicial organ on questions as important as the right of self-defence, the use of force, i.e. in the Yugoslavian context, consular matters, questions of immunity, maritime and territorial delimitation, revision of judgments and the effect of provisional matters.
