Chapter Summary

International Law has marked its presence in the recent cycle of the World Conferences convened by the United Nations in the nineties and by the turn of the century. The conferences have contributed decisively to form the substantive content of the international agenda. Relevant passages of their final documents (declarations and plans or programmes of action) identify key issues of direct concern to the international community, propose courses of action as a response to new challenges and in pursuance of a new international order with more social justice, and propound the cultural and spiritual development of human societies, to the benefit of humankind as a whole. Underlying the final documents of U.N. World Conferences, added to the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), and the 2001 Durban Declaration and Programme of Action, is ultimately the universal search for justice.

Keywords:cultural development; International Criminal Court (ICC); social development; United Nations; world conferences
