Environmental Disputes – Reflecting on a Recent Decision of the International Court of Justice

26th October 2010

On 20 April 2010, the ICJ delivered an important decision on an environmental regarding the construction and operation of pulp mills on the river Uruguay, on the border of Argentina and Uruguay. According to this decision, Uruguay may continue to operate a pulp mill that was built without respecting certain procedural obligations contained in an agreement between the two States.

As this case raises a number of interesting issues, this seminar will discuss the findings of the Court, as well as the broader environmental law context and the way environmental disputes are currently being handled by the courts.
