The International Court of Justice was established in 1946, in place of the Permanent Court of International Justice. The new court was made an integral part of the United Nations Charter and the principal judicial organ of the United Nations.
Article 94 of the Charter of the United Nations contains provisions tohe effect that the parties to disputes undertake to carry out the decisions of the Court. However, none of these instruments contain provisions, which make possible the automatic enforcement against the will of the judgment debtor of a decision, which has been given and which is binding on the parties. Although, all of the judgments and orders in contentious cases, of the Permanent Court of International Justice have been carried out by the states concerned, the present court, International Court of Justice, is credited with many instances of non - compliance with its judgments and orders. The present article highlight the problems of the enforcement of judgments and orders of the International Court of Justice, and analyses the mechanism of the United Nations Charter regarding enforcement of the judgments and orders of the Court.
