Default International justice court, in case they don't agree

If two states that signed the binding convention allowing them to use the International justice court in case they don't agree on stuff both go to see the international justice court concerning their continental shelf! Both proclaim it should be bigger than the other and all because (they both share common waters). The international justice court tells them to talk it out and find a solution but they don't arrive to one. What does the international justice court do next? Does she make the decision for them? The first country composed as islands says that it should be split between him and the other one. Whereas the other one says it's not fair because and talks about distributive justice and the geography in link.

Default Re: International justice court, in case they don't agree

I wish to inform you that the International Court of Justice (ICJ orthe World Court) is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (UN). It settles legal disputes between member states. In contentious cases (adversarial proceedings seeking to settle a dispute), the ICJ produces a binding ruling between states that agree to submit to the ruling of the court.

But not all countries agree to be bound by the decisions.
And some like the US, I believe, agree to be bound only on certain specific cases.

The International Court of Justice can pronounce its decision if both the states are its members and they agree that they are bound by the jurisdiction of ICJ in that particular dispute.
