Description: Pieter H.F. Bekker reports on the case brought by Argentina to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on May 4, 2006. It asserts that neighboring Uruguay "has breached a bilateral treaty obligation to consult with Argentina before taking action on a pulp mill project affecting the River Uruguay, which partially constitutes the joint boundary of the two South American countries." (ASIL Insight, para. 1) Argentina is seeking reparation and provisional measures of protection from the Court.
As Bekker explains, "The key point of contention between the parties is whether or not the paper mills would comply with international norms regarding effluent emission from pulp mills." He goes on to lay out the history of and conditions under which the Court may deal with Argentina's request for provisional measures.
A link to an ASIL Insights update on the court's decision of April 2010 is also provided.
