Chapter Summary

Much has been reported and commented about the International Law Commission and its work, but virtually very little is known about multiculturalism within the international body set up for the principal task of codification and progressive development of international law. This chapter begins with the search for an ideal manageable size of the Commission taking into account its realistic workload. It assesses the practicality of the Commission's programme of work, having regard to the urgency and relative importance of each topic under active study by the Commission at various stages of its work. The chapter seeks to ascertain the value of the multiplicity of the legal cultures that have been called into play. It evaluates the relevancy and contribution of existing legal multicultural components of the Commission in relation to the general acceptability of each of its final products.
