Lecture: Recent developments in international law and in the ILC: in sync?, Prof. Dr. Georg Nolte (Humboldt University Berlin), Finley Library Lauterpacht Centre, 6 October 2017, 1.00pm-3.00pm
The work of the International Law Commission has sometimes been perceived as reflecting general trends in public international law. In recent years serious challenges have occurred for the development and the stability of international law. Going through some of the recent work of the Commission, Georg Nolte discusses whether such challenges have had a significant effect on its work.
