Happy Day for a Jurist (and Her Proteges)
ICJ president and sometime lawprof Rosalyn Higgins has been awarded one of four 2007 Balzan Prizes. The citation is here. The prize comes with a million Swiss francs (that’s more than $800,000). Under a condition imposed in 2001, “prize winners must now destine half of their awards for research projects carried out preferably by young humanists and scientists,” as the Balzan Foundation website puts it.
