Chapter Summary

The outbreak of the War had not found the Court unawares. For several years there was little overt interest in the future of the Court, for obvious reasons. However, even in the early stages of the War both official circles and unofficial groups began to consider the problems of the future political organization of the world. Article 108 of the Charter governs its amendment. That provides that amendments shall come into force for all members of the United Nations when they have been adopted by a vote of two thirds of the members of the General Assembly and ratified in accordance with their respective constitutional processes by two thirds of the members of the United Nations, including all the permanent members of the Security Council.
