Chapter Summary

Four generic types of agreement for referring a matter to the Court can be discerned. These are: the special agreement; the compromissory clause in a given treaty or in an ancillary document to a given treaty; a general treaty for the pacific settlement of disputes either between two States or for a region; and the framework agreement. All of these are variations on the same theme and sometimes they overlap each other. To a large extent these variations have developed in response to the requirements of diplomacy. There are two regional organizations which have established regional treaties for the pacific settlement of disputes between their members. For the Organization of American States, the American Treaty on Pacific Settlement was concluded on 13 April 1948.
