Under the auspices of the Research in International Law a committee of students of neutrality under the leadership of Professor Philip C. Jessup, reporter, drafted and published, after some years of deliberation, a draft convention on the rights and duties of neutral states in naval and aerial war. Drawing on the resources and experience of history, they drafted a code of one hundred fourteen articles which attempts to bring certainty into the relations between belligerents and neutrals. To a considerable extent the code follows the rules of The Hague Conventions as developed and amplified by approved experience subsequent to 1907. The draft of the Committee of Experts which met at The Hague in 1922 and 1923 under the chairmanship of John Bassett Moore is drawn upon for modern rules concerning radio and aircraft in time of war.
