#33 Advisory Opinions: High Politics vor Internationalen Gerichten


Wie gelangen wesentliche politische Fragen überhaupt noch vor internationale Gerichten? Scheinbar zunehmend auf dem Wege von Advisory Opinions (Rechtsgutachten).

Isabel Lischewski führt ein in die Voraussetzungen, unter denen der Internationale Gerichtshof (IGH) Rechtsgutachten erteilt. Jan-Henrik Hinselmann spricht dann mit Christoph Priess über die Konjunktur dieser Verfahrensart und ihre vielen spannenden Implikationen.
