The International Law Reports is the only publication in the world wholly devoted to the regular and systematic reporting in English of decisions of international courts and arbitrators as well as judgments of national courts. Among the cases reported in Volume 116 is the 1997 'Danube dam' case concerning the Gabcikovo-Nagymaros Project (Hungary/Slovakia) together with three colour maps. Also included is the hitherto unreported decision of the English High Court on act of State and the effect of Security Council resolutions in the latest phase of Kuwait Airways Corp. v. Iraqi Airways Co. Several important decisions of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights on State responsibility for human rights actions are reported. Finally, there is a group of newly translated cases on State immunity and international organisation immunity from Austria, France, Portugal and Switzerland which brings the volume to a close.
