117 The United Nations Decade of International Law By Finn Seyersted* A. The Decade The forty-fourth General Assembly of the United Nations adopted on 17 November 1989 a resolution on "The United Nations Decade of International Law", to be con- cluded by a third Hague Conference. The first two Hague Conferences in 1899 and 1907 established a treaty on peaceful settlement of international disputes and an international "Permanent Court of Arbitration" with a panel of judges from which the parties to each concrete dispute could choose arbitrators. Later - after the first and second world wars - the League of Nations and the United Nations established a standing international tribunal: The International Court of Justice, also in the Hague. After these events the de-colonisation led to the establishment of a greater num- ber of new states than those which had existed before. These new states in the Third World had not taken part in the Hague conferences, nor in the establishment of the International Court of Justice.
