Abstract

First, this chapter places in context the role of an important international adjudication mechanism as the Court in interpreting different legal aspects concerning the process of State recognition. Then, it proceeds to analysing the following issues, namely access to the Court for UN non-member States and differences between contentious cases and advisory proceedings; conditions for admission and membership of States in the UN; State recognition and self-determination in the context of decolonisation, including collective non-recognition of internationally wrongful acts; and, declarations of independence under international law.

Keywords: International Court of Justice, State recognition, contested States, United Nations
