Yearbook of the United Nations, 2001. Part 4, Legal questions. Chapter 1, International Court of Justice
In 2001, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) delivered three Judgements, made 18 Orders and had 25 contentious cases pending before it. On 31 October, the ICJ President informed the General Assembly that the Court's docket remained overburdened and that solutions would have to be found to avoid excessive delays in examining cases that were ready to be heard. Noting that administrative and procedural efforts made by the Court to redress the situation would not be sufficient, he appealed to the Assembly to ensure the financial and human resources required for the Court to perform its duties properly. The President stated that ICJ could play an important role in preventing conflicts, particularly territorial ones, and encouraged States to refer their disputes to the Court by way of Special Agreement.
