Abstract

The need to settle international disputes by means other than war led to the establishment of the World Court as fruit of a US movement since the turn of the century, to 1919, reestablished with the United Nations in 1945. The effectiveness of these international institutions was seriously impaired by the most powerful nations almost immediately after they were formed. Notable later was United States Secretary George Shultz's refusal to let the World Court's decisions on Nicaragua's complaint as binding. The author urges peace students and others to use the opportunity offered by the end of the Cold War to make possible the return of the Rule of Global Law.
