Correct Answer - Option 2 : The Hague

The correct answer is The Hague.

  • The headquarters of the International Court of Justice is located at The Hague.
  • Joan Donoghue is the president of the International Court of Justice.
  • The International Court of Justice was established in June 1945 by the Charter of the United Nations and began work in April 1946. 
  • Dalveer Bhandari is the current Indian member of the International Court of Justice.

  • The International Court of Justice is composed of 15 judges elected to nine-year terms of office by the United Nations General Assembly and the Security Council. These organs vote simultaneously but separately.
  • In order to be elected, a candidate must receive an absolute majority of the votes in both bodies. This sometimes makes it necessary for a number of rounds of voting to be held.
  • In order to ensure a degree of continuity, one-third of the Court is elected every three years. Judges are eligible for re-election. Should a judge die or resign during his or her term of office, a special election is held as soon as possible to choose a judge to fill the unexpired part of the term.
  • The Court may not include more than one national of the same State. Moreover, the Court as a whole must represent the main forms of civilization and the principal legal systems of the world.
  • Once elected, a Member of the Court is a delegate neither of the government of his own country nor of that of any other State.

  •  The headquarters of the United Nations is in New York City.
  • Geneva is the headquarters of the World Trade Organisation.
