Sample text

At the founders’ conference in 1945 at San Francisco, there were vigorous debates about the “umpiring function,” with a narrow majority favoring the Court as sole final arbiter; but the Big Powers resisted such judicial supremacy. In the event, it was decided, fractiously, that the kompetenz-kompetenz should be exercised, first, by each principal organ in its own assigned bailiwick and, secondarily, by the Court when an issue arose in litigation between two member states or when the judges were requested by the Council or Assembly to render an advisory opinion (Article 96).

It is remarkable that a text drafted in 1945 still has such an impact on international affairs. Times change, of course, but the barriers to agreement on the Charter in the first place also make amending its text extremely difficult. 1 As a result, the text of the Charter has remained largely unchanged. Nevertheless, it has been interpreted somewhat differently over the years. This chapter first provides an overview of the Charter before looking at its treatment in three broad periods: the near paralysis of the Cold War, the exuberant interventionism of the 1990s, and the clashing priorities of security and development from around 2001—coinciding with the rise of terrorist networks as threats with global reach.
