Ranganathan, S. (2016). THE 2015 JUDICIAL ACTIVITY OF THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE. American Journal of International Law https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.5870
The International Court of Justice (Court or ICJ) delivered three judgments in 2015. The first, delivered on 3 February, determines claims of genocide made by Croatia and Serbia against each other. The second, delivered on 24 September, addresses Chile’s preliminary objections in a case brought by Bolivia claiming violation of an obligation to negotiate in good faith in order to secure Bolivia’s sovereign access to the Pacific. The third, delivered on 16 December, concerns the joined cases brought by Costa Rica and Nicaragua against each other, alleging territorial violations and transboundary environmental harms. This review highlights notable points of interest in the judgments, and draws attention to particular insights and critiques afforded by the several individual opinions that accompany each judgment.
