Chapter Summary

With the end of the First World War following the Armistice of 11 November 1918, preparations for the peace conference were put in hand. On 14 February 1920, at its second session it established the Advisory Committee of Jurists to prepare plans for the establishment of the Court. That was the beginning of the political process that at the end of 1920 led to the adoption of the Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice. The Advisory Committee of Jurists was in session at The Hague from 10 June to 24 July 1920. For the most part the Committee was concerned with the major issues of the organization and constitution of the Court, its composition, and its contentious jurisdiction. Articles 59, 60, and 61 set out the contours of the concept of res judicata for the International Court of Justice.
