Summary: The world's most comprehensive free access international and humanitarian law research infrastructure will be built by the AustLII, advised by international law experts, to include a global treaties collection, complete decisions of International Courts and Tribunals, other key source materials, law journals and commentaries. Resources will be jointly and separately searchable with AustLII citation mining technology used to create linkages between these resources, and to automate finding national decisions and legislation concerning any international decision or treaty. Australia's high performance in international law research and practice will be enhanced by these greatly improved research resources.'',
