Former United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali was the first to call The Hague the 'legal capital of the world'. Now, Peter van Krieken and David McKay in The Hague: Legal Capital of the World examine the city that hosts the world's main legal bodies. The book discusses the International Court of Justice (the 'World Court'), the International Criminal Court, the Yugoslav Tribunal and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, to name a few. Throughout the book renowned experts offer clear exposition and incisive analysis, supported by fact sheets and key documents. Alongside the cases that make the headlines, the reader will discover lesser-known but surprisingly influential organizations, such as the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Hague Conference on Private International Law. A rich introductory section adds historical context and legal essentials.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The present book - The Hague: Legal Capital of the World - serves the purpose of explaining in clear and matter-of-fact terms the institutions present in The Hague and how one can make use of them. It should be a useful tool in capitals and at the diplomatic representations in The Hague. But it should also be of use in teaching and at non-governmental organizations.' Hans Corell, former Legal Counsel of the United Nations
'By providing scholarly analysis of over a century of developments in The Hague, it forms a significant addition to the available literature on the subject. Naturally, the information in the book also provides a solid basis for understanding future developments, such as the work of the International Criminal Court.' Wim Deetman, Mayor of The Hague
'We in the Netherlands are proud to be at the heart of international legal practice and theory. When you read the interesting contributions to this book, you will undoubtedly understand why.' Bernard Bot, Min. of Foreign Affairs of The Netherlands
