  • Academy Book Launch: The Case for an International Court of Civil Justice

    February 6, 2019

    During the first edition of the Winter Courses of The Hague Academy, a new book titled ‘The Case for an International Court of Civil Justice’ by Professor Maya Steinitz was presented to the students of the Academy. A few chapters of this book were included in the reading lists of Professor Catherine Kessedjian who was responsible for the General Course during the Winter Session. In this book, Professor Steinitz argues for the creation of an International Court of Civil Justice (ICCJ). In a world where victims of cross-border mass torts de facto lack a court to turn to in order to pursue legal action against multinational corporations responsible for disasters, atrocities, and other harms, Prof. Steinitz argues that this is the only way to provide a fair, legitimate, and efficient process for both victims and corporations.
