“Reasserting the Unity of International Law: The ICJ as a Human Rights Court, and Other Departures from Old Doctrines”
A Talk by Mads Andenas, Professor of Law, University of Oslo
12- 1 pm
Mads Andenas, Professor of Law at the University of Oslo, will assess recent developments in international adjudication that attempt to overcome the fragmentation of the field, including the effort of the International Court of Justice to reassert its centrality by taking on the role of a human rights court.
Professor Andenas is a Fellow of Institute of European and Comparative Law, University of Oxford; Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London; and Editor of the European Business Law Review. He also serves as one of the five members of the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention.
