Green Global Tribunals on the Way. (Insider Report).
The Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) was created in 1899 at the end of a multinational peace conference in The Hague. Its present powers are set forth in the 1976 United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. The Cousteau Society is a UN-accredited "non-governmental organization" (NGO).
In recent years, UN officials and supporters have spoken of the need to deputize NGOs to serve fact-finding and enforcement missions on behalf of the world body. The entente between the PCA and the Cousteau Society certainly fits that description.
