Teresa Miguel at Yale Law Library’s Foreign and International Blog posted her review and endorsement for the International Law Video Library yesterday. A very interesting project, and great use of video to capture content, knowledge and history.
Teresa’s post also included the following excellent examples from the collection:
- Thomas Buergenthal, Judge at the International Court of Justice, speaks about reservations to treaties.
- Phillippe Kirsch, President of the International Criminal Court, sat down for an interview in September 2005 in which he introduced himself, and went on to give the historical background of the creation of the International Criminal Court. President Kirsch then when on to explain how the Court functions, its structure, and finally gave a status report of the Court’s activites as of 2005.
- James Crawford , Whewell Professor of International Law, University of Cambridge, considers his time at the UN International Law Commission as part of the Working Group on an International Criminal Court and the drafting of the 1994 Draft Statute for an International Criminal Court. The 1994 ILC Draft was source of the drafting process which ultimately lead to the 1998 Rome Diplomatic Conference and the creation of the International Criminal Court.
- Judge Navanethem Pillay, President of the International Criminal for Rwanda Tribunal (1999 – 2003) and later Judge of the International Criminal Court introduces herself and explains why the Rwanda Tribunal was established.
