Chapter Summary

One of the features of the development of international law and relations and the conduct of international affairs during the nineteenth century has been the increasing use of arbitration procedures for the pacific settlement of international disputes - that is the settlement of a dispute between two or more States by judges of their own choice. The Second Hague Peace Conference of 1907 was convened jointly by the Russian and United States Governments, inter alia for the purpose of considering improvements to be made in the provisions of the 1899 Convention. The Hague Conventions are the first attempt to set a regular pattern for international litigation. An explanation for the non-inclusion in the Optional Rules of any provision for revision can be found in the fact that those Optional Rules were themselves an adaptation of the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules of 1976, which were designed for commercial arbitrations.
