The International Court of Justice will issue its 100th decision on February 3, 2009. This is more than a curiosity -- it marks 100 instances where nations have come together in a neutral international forum to settle their differences. The track record on compliance with ICJ decisions and orders has been largely good (with some recent notable exceptions), and the ICJ is now faced with its largest and busiest docket ever. Perhaps this international law thing is catching on?
