The Hague Summit on International Law & Human Rights
An Interdisciplinary Analysis of the Role of International Law in Promoting Human Rights
(International Court of Justice, The Hague; February 4th-5th, 2015)
IntroductionThe year 2015, which will mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations and the creation of the UN International Court of Justice, represents the major transitions that have taken place in the development of global human rights towards a more equal and protected civil society. These powerful transitions have presented citizens with great opportunity to develop a just society based on the sincere and absolute protection of human rights.
The contemporary international law system, which encompasses a diverse collection of international accords, UN charters, agreements, treaties, protocols, tribunals, memorandums, and the legal precedents of the International Court of Justice (IJC), serves today as the primary pillar for the protection and the development of human rights globally.
In today’s globalized world, where billions of citizens are demanding the development and protection of basic human rights, the development of an effective functioning international law system is therefore of paramount importance. However, the realization of this demand, requires both universality and a greater magnitude of legislation together with the further development of legal procedures, in order to assure the implementation and further development of human rights globally.
