Chair and Moderator

Judge Abdul G. Koroma, formerly International Court of Justice and ILC

Description

This session will examine the composition and working methods of the ILC. We will consider if and how well the Commission is equipped to carry out its mandate of progressive development and codification of modern international law. Does the professional background and gender composition of the ILC membership have implications for its work? What is the role of special rapporteurs, the drafting committee, working groups and study groups? Could those be improved? If so, how? If not, why not? What about the Secretariat of the Commission? Are there structural, budgetary and other impediments to the improvements of the working methods and efficiency of the Commission? If so, how could those be overcome? What, if any, are the pros and cons of the ILC’s seeming shift to draft conclusions rather than draft articles destined to become conventions?
