The PCA was established by the Convention for the Pacific Settlement of International Disputes, concluded at The Hague in 1899 during the first Hague Peace Conference.
Decisions of the PCA are shelved at Internat 130.
Texts specifically about the PCA & its work are at Internat 730. But students may find it worthwhile to other sections between Internat 710 and 760 which have as common theme International disputes and arbitration.
