|All member states of the UN are parties to the Statute of the ICJ. They can accept the ICJ's jurisdiction by declarations, bilateral agreements or multilateral treaties. Non-UN members can also obtain their locus stnadi before the ICJ through similar ways. However, the ICJ's recent judgments limit its own jurisdiction ambit. The result of which is that in reality the ICJ may accept cases from non-UN members only when they accept its jurisdiction by declarations. For Taiwan's being a party to the Statute of the ICJ or accepting jurisdiction of the ICJ, it at least holds two senses: one is to be affirmed as a sovereign state; the other is to settle international disputes peacefully. Every sovereign state, even though not a member state of the UN, may become a party to the Statute of the ICJ and declare its acceptance of the jurisdiction of the ICJ. However, due to her unique international status, Taiwan, if wishing to become a party of the Statute of the ICJ, has to go through difficulties to win in the General Assembly. Moreover, Taiwan's declaration of accepting jurisdiction of the ICJ may also face a kind of "confirmation" effect. When the Registrar of the ICJ publicly rejects or the ICJ rules by judgment that Taiwan's declaration is not acceptable, it will offer negative input. It is therefore suggested that a cautious attitude should always be bear in mind before submitting an acceptance instrument or declaration of accepting jurisdiction.
