established Jan. 21, 1914, on the initiative of European international jurists. Located in The Hague (Netherlands); working languages, French and English. Financed primarily by private organizations, including the Carnegie and the Rockefeller foundations.

In accordance with article 2 of its charter, the Academy of International Law is a “center for the study of international law (public and private) and affiliated sciences, with the goal of facilitating the impartial study of questions concerning international juridical relations.” In 1957 a research center for international law and international relations was created under the auspices of the academy. The board of curators (the academic council of the Academy of International Law) consists of 12 prominent international jurists from various countries. Jurists of the USSR and other socialist countries have participated in the work of the academy since 1957. A series of lectures is given annually, as a rule in August, by international law scholars from various countries, including the Soviet Union. The audience consists of specialists in international law who are interested in some aspect of the subject of the lectures, which are usually publicized a year in advance. The governing body of the academy is the administrative council, which includes representatives of the administration of the Carnegie Foundation. Since 1925 the academy has published yearbooks, Recueil des course de l’Académie de droit international, containing all the lectures given that year.
