The International Court of Justice and Decolonisation, Co-Edited by ISOLAS Consultant Jamie Trinidad
ISOLAS LLP consultant Jamie Trinidad has co-edited a book on the
2019 Chagos Advisory Opinion of the International Court of Justice,
published recently by Cambridge University Press.
The contributions to this book examine the Court's reasoning, the importance of the decision for the international system, and its consequences for the situation in the Chagos Archipelago (or "British Indian Ocean Territory") in particular.
Jamie, a fellow, tutor and director of studies in law at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge, fellow of the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, and practising barrister, said:
"The ICJ's Chagos Advisory Opinion has important
implications, not least for the law of decolonisation,
self-determination, territory, jurisdiction and state
responsibility. My co-editor (Prof. Thomas Burri) and I thought it
would be a good idea to gather together a collection of essays on
various aspects of the Advisory Opinion in a single edited volume,
which will hopefully serve as a valuable resource for people who
are interested in the case. We're thrilled that it's
finally out in print."
