Update: perspective on the Pulp Mills on the River Uruguay ICJ case


Collegue BO has forwarded the first of a no doubt long list of case comments on the Uruguay River Pulp Mills case: here is ASIL's comment by Cymie Payne.

ASIL's comment claims that «the Court recognized environmental impact assessment as a practice that has become an obligation of general international law in these situations.»

If this is the case, does that mean that aspects of text of the UN 1997 Convention are already obsolete even before the Convention enters into force?: article 12 mentions environmental impact assesments but appears not to impose an specific positive obligation to perform such an assessment.
