60th Anniversary of UN's International Law Commission

The International Law Commission is meeting in Geneva for its 60th session later this month and will celebrate its 60th anniversary with a special commemorative event.

The Commission was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948 for the "promotion of the progressive development of international law and its codification."

The work of the Commission has led to the adoption of many important international treaties and principles such as the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, 1969, the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, 1998 and the codification of the Nuremberg principles.

All Commission documents, from 1949 to today, are available on the Commission website.
