Invites the International Law Commission to consider further and analyse the issues raised in its report concerning the question of an international criminal jurisdiction, including the possibility of establishing an international criminal court or other international criminal trial mechanism; requests the International Law Commission: (a) to consider further its methods of work in all their aspects, bearing in mind that the staggering of the consideration of some topics might contribute, inter alia, to a more effective consideration of its report in the 6th Committee; (b) to indicate in its annual report, for each topic, those specific issues on which expressions of views by Governments, either in the 6th Committee or in written form, would be of particular interest for the continuation of its work; invites the International Commission, when circumstances so warrant, to request a special rapporteur to attend the session of the General Assembly during the discussion of the topic for which that special rapporteur is responsible; decides that the 6th Committee, in structuring its debate on the report of the International Law Commission at the 46th session of the General Assembly, should continue to bear in mind the possibility of reserving time for informal exchanges of views on matters relating to the work of the Commission; urges Governments and, as appropriate, international organizations to respond in writing as fully and expeditiously as possible to the requests of the International Law Commission for comments, observations and replies to questionnaires and for materials on topics in its programme of work.
