Nicaragua Before the International Court of Justice: Impacts on International Law covers the significant role of cases involving Nicaragua as a party before the International Court of Justice, in the development of international law before the ICJ.

The book includes a contemporary assessment of the momentous decisions in the Military and Paramilitary Activities Case and explores a variety of important dimensions associated with over 13 cases before the ICJ. With contributions from renowned judges, practitioners, and academics, Nicaragua before the ICJ demonstrates how these cases have established grounds for the Court to clarify a wide range of important jurisdictional, substantive and procedural legal issues and examines how these clarifications have been received by other tribunals, international organizations, and States.

Our panel will discuss leading examples and issues in a roundtable format, to launch the book with a conversation for students and experts alike.

Prof. dr. Pierre d’Argent (Université Catholique de Louvain)

Mr. Benjamin Samson (Université Paris Nanterre)
