Chapter 5: CONTRIBUTION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTERNATIONAL LAW

Law, Practice and Procedure

P. Chandrasekhara Rao and Philippe Gautier

Extract

By applying the law to a specific situation in order to settle a dispute, international courts interpret legal rules and provide answers which ensure a consistent implementation of international law. To that extent they contribute to the development of international law. Chapter 5 illustrates the contribution of the Tribunal's jurisprudence to international law by selecting different questions which relate either to the judicial practice of the Tribunal (inter alia, the creative use of provisional measures and advisory proceedings or the Tribunal's handling of delimitation questions) or to issues in respect of which international law has developed on the basis of the decisions of the Tribunal (inter alia, the status and obligations of the flag States, the protection of the marine environment, and State's responsibility).
