The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. It was established in June 1945 by the Charter of the United Nations and began work in April 1946. The seat of the Court is at the Peace Palace in The Hague (Netherlands). Of the six principal organs of the United Nations, it is the only one not located in New York (United States of America).

 

The Court’s role is to settle, in accordance with international law, legal disputes submitted to it by States and to give advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by authorized United Nations organs and specialized agencies.

 

The Court is composed of 15 judges, who are elected for terms of office of nine years by the United Nations General Assembly and the Security Council. It is assisted by a Registry, its administrative organ. Its official languages are English and French.

 

In 1934 the Dutch post issued the first stamps for the Permanent Court of International Justice, the predecessor of the ICJ. From 1947 to 2004 special stamps for use by the ICJ were on sale. Use of these stamps was limited to the Court itself. For collectors the stamps issued until 1977 were only available with a cancellation. Only limited numbers of unused stamps can be found.
