27 Feb 2017 Elections to the International Court of Justice
One of the missions of the BFPG is to provide easy access to relevant UK foreign policy information. As well as publishing our own independent work, we provide a hub of the latest UK foreign policy related publications.
For the first time since the creation of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in 1946, the UK does not have a judge on the Court. The Foreign Affairs Select Committee have stated that this represents a “failure of UK diplomacy”. This report outlines possible reasons for this failure, lessons to be learnt and how the UK might avoid such eventualities in the future so that the UK maintains international influence and remains a strong proponent for the rules- based international system.
