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.
