Next Week at the ICJ: Georgia v. Russia Oral Proceedings and Swearing-in of Donoghue and Xue

by Chris Borgen

Next week the ICJ will have oral proceedings in the case Application of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (Georgia v. Russian Federation). The .pdf of the press release is here. As far as I can tell, unlike in the Kosovo proceedings, there will not be an internet simulcast. (The Kosovo simulcast was very glitchy anyway, but now you can watch it archived.) Provisional measures have already been granted in this case; my take on the order is here.

Monday will also see the swearing in of Joan Donoghue and Xue Hanqin. The Court’s press release (pdf here) notes that this is the first time the ICJ has included two women.
