Last week, OUP uploaded 40 new articles to the Encyclopedia. Two of the articles in particular exemplify the way the Encyclopedia’s content addresses the international law aspects of topical issues in international affairs. The Lockerbie Cases article explains the ICJ proceedings and the criminal trial which saw the conviction of Abdelbaset Ali Al Megrhai whose controversial release in 2009 has led to diplomatic tensions between the UK and USA. The international law background to Kosovo’s declaration of independence which was the subject of an ICJ Advisory Opinion in July 2010 can be found in the article on Territorial Integrity and Political Independence.
