Cambridge International Law Journal, Vol. 6 No. 1, pp. 1-3



This inaugural issue of the Cambridge International Law Journal (CILJ) marks a new
and exciting development for the Journal. CILJ is committed to continuing the tradi-
tion of its predecessor, the Cambridge Journal of International and Comparative Law,
in providing a platform for both young and well-established academics to engage in
outstanding research in the field of international law. It is in this spirit, and with the
aim of promoting  a wider readership for the Journal, that we have recently entered
into a collaboration with Edward  Elgar Publishing, who  share our dedication to
high quality scholarship. We are grateful to them for embarking on this new venture
with us. The advice and support of Luke Adams, Ben  Booth, Helen Craven, Marina
Bowgen   and  the Edward  Elgar editing team  has been  particularly invaluable.
We  look forward  to strengthening our continued partnership into the future. This
collaboration was  made  possible thanks  to the endeavours  of our predecessor
Editors-in-Chief, Catherine Gascoigne and Barry Solaiman, to whom we would  also
wish to convey our gratitude.
   As ever, the production of this issue would not have been possible without the help
and support of a number of people. Particular thanks are owed to the authors for their
contributions. It has been a great pleasure to engage with and promote such thought-
provoking scholarship. Our Managing Editors, John Adenitire, Ya Lan Chang, Raffael
Fasel, Natalie Jones, Ridhi Kabra and their teams of editors have been tireless in their
efforts and dedication to the Journal. We are also grateful for the continued support of
the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, its Director and our Honorary Editor-in-
Chief, Professor Eyal Benvenisti, the Cambridge Centre for European Legal Studies,
the Cambridge Law  Faculty and the members of our Academic Review Board for their
continued guidance.


Recent world events have shown  a renewed need  for awareness and appreciation of
international law. This issue contributes to this endeavour via its exploration of diverse
topics in the field. Among the subjects covered are international dispute settlement,
human  rights law, the law on the use of force, law of the sea and international invest-
ment law. While  situated in what could be considered among the most conventional
areas of international law,  each article offers an insightful analysis of new
   In Part I, two articles are dedicated to examining the work of international courts
and tribunals, albeit with different focuses. In the first, entitled 'The Dispute That
Wasn't  There: Judgments  in the Nuclear Disarmament   Cases at the International
Court of Justice', Michael A Becker scrutinises the way in which the International
Court of Justice handled the jurisdictional question of whether a dispute existed in
the case brought  by the Marshall  Islands against three nuclear powers:  India,
Pakistan, and the United Kingdom.  Based on  an analysis of the Court's reasoning
with respect to the existence of a dispute in these three cases, Becker argues that
