About the product

This set provides an introduction to the work of the International Law Commission (ILC), with sufficient references to facilitate further research. Volume I discusses the nature and role of the ILC, as well as of its programme of work, working methods and relationship with governments and other legal bodies. It includes a brief summary of the work undertaken on each topic considered since 1949, as well as several annexes, containing its Statute, relevant historical information, and a selected bibliography. Volume II reproduces the full texts of the final draft instruments prepared by the ILC and submitted to the General Assembly for its consideration, as well as of multilateral conventions adopted by diplomatic conferences convened under the auspices of the United Nations or by the General Assembly, on the basis of draft articles prepared by the ILC. The present edition reflects the work of the ILC as of 31 December 2011. (Two-Volume Set)
