"Whaling in the Antarctic: Observations on the ICJ Judgment in the Case Australia v. Japan"

Speaker: Dr. Olivier Ribbelink, Senior researcher Public International law, T.M.C. Asser Instituut

On 31 March 2014, the International Court of Justice will pronounce its judgment in the case Whaling in the Antarctic: Australia v Japan, New Zealand Intervening. Australia claims that Japan’s continued pursuit of a large-scale program of whaling under its research program is in breach of that countries’ obligations under the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling (ICRW), as well as its other international obligations for the preservation of marine mammals and the marine environment. Dr. Ribbelink will provide his observations and comments on the manner in which the ICJ decided in this case.
