Explanation of Botswana/Nimibia case The trial in progress at the ICJ was a border dispute between Botswana and Namibia. Our resident expert on Botswana gave us an update on what the trial pertained to — apparently a small section of land that is mostly covered with water for much of the year. He gave a great explanation, despite the late trip to Amsterdam the previous night.
Classmates in the Peace Palace The Peace Palace We arrived that morning at a beautiful building, the Peace Palace, which holds the International Court of Justice. Once inside, everything is even more beautiful, and every seemingly small object has a detailed history and is insured for millions of dollars.
The staircase inside the door begged for photographs, and everyone had to have at least one. Dr. Slinn even joins me on the steps. Still standing on the stairs
