Chapter Summary

One of the signs of the precarious position of the United Nations (UN) in the contemporary international relations is the problem the World Organization faces whenever there are serious reasons for amending its Charter. Taking into account that international customary law is separately mentioned in para. 1(b) of the same Article, it is plausible to claim that the basis of these principles is to be found in municipal laws. The International Tribunal for the Preservation of Persons Responsible for Serious Violations of International Humanitarian Law in the Territory of the Former Yugoslavia since 1991 (ICTY) has been established by Security Council Resolution 827, as a measure taken in accordance with Chapter VII of the UN Charter. The official name of the Court in English is International Court of Justice (ICJ), in French Cour internationale de Justice, but in Russian only Meždunarodnij sud.
