The determination of the existence of the dispute is a crucial aspect according to which the International Court of Justice (ICJ or the Court) decides whether it can exercise its contentious jurisdiction. ‘The Court, as a court of law, is called upon to resolve existing disputes between states. Thus, the existence of the dispute is the primary condition for the Court to exercise its judicial function’.
