Underlying the theme of the Conference is the belief of the ICJ that the Rule of Law, being a dynamic concept, should have, for the areas under study, the same essential validity it has for other parts of the world.
It should further have the belief that the representative government which the Rule of Law seeks to foster and protect should not be eclipsed by the urgent and fundamental problems of those areas but rather should ultimately find acceptance as the only sure basis for their enduring solution.
The Conference is held with the hope that it may contribute means to give further practical effect to these beliefs.
