Excerpts from Mr. Hoffmann's Conclusions:
Decisions of the Security Council not involving state on state aggression should be subject to judicial review by the World Court or a special chamber thereof, provided the General Assembly, or a designated Committee thereof, files a request with the Court for an Advisory Opinion within 15 days of such action. As a trade-off for the permanent members of the Security Council consenting to a modification of their one member veto power and agreeing to the blocking power for the General Assembly on certain matters, a system of weighted voting should be instituted in the General Assembly on budgetary and other important matters, including the power to block Security Council decisions on economic and social matters.
