The International Court of Justice, as a legal pillar of the United Nations, adjudicates disputes between states. The objective of this article is to address the question of whether, in the event that a powerful member of the United Nations fails to comply with judgments rendered by the International Court of Justice, the opposing party has the capacity to confront such behavior.

The findings of this article indicate that the prevailing party, benefiting from a rendered judgment, can compel the convicted party to adhere to the content of the issued judgment through the utilization of international rules and laws, and the sanctions mechanisms such as legal remedies, coercive measures, and United Nations sanctions. The research methodology employed in this article is Trans-analytical, relying on analogous judgments, documents, books, and relevant articles in the field to substantiate its hypotheses.
