On the 70th anniversary of the International Court of Justice, Dr. Aaron Matta, Senior Researcher at The Hague Institute, spoke to AFP about the legacy of the Court in international law until the present day. Dr. Matta highlighted the role the Court plays in the peaceful settlement of various types of disputes. Dr. Matta’s remarks were featured in coverage by The Express Tribune and Yahoo News.
“The ICJ has helped settle international disputes involving territorial issues, diplomatic relations, hostage-taking and economic rights, and has also served, albeit to a limited extent, as an instrument to protect human rights, but also jurisprudence to meet challenges such as threats to the environment.”
