Happy Day for a Jurist (and Her Proteges)

by Peter Spiro

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.


One Response

  1. Good for her. Outside looking in mind you, I’ve found her book, Problems &Process: International Law and How We Use It (1994), both helpful and provocative. I think the ICJ is fortunate to have Higgins at the helm.
