BIICL Research Fellows visit ICJ for Institute Project on Evidence before International Courts and T
Evidence Project Director, Anna Riddell, and Researcher Brendan Plant, attended the oral proceedings on the Preliminary Objections of Colombia on Jurisdiction in the case concerning Territorial and Maritime Dispute (Nicaragua v Colombia) at the Peace Palace in The Hague this week.
In addition, both President Rosalyn Higgins and the Registrar, M Philippe Couvreur, were kind enough to give generously of their time to the project researchers to answer their questions, provide an insight into the workings of the Court, and give their views on evidence in the Court.
Visits to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia to view the Appeal Hearings in the Limaj et al. case and to the International Criminal Court were also made.
