‘Iran and International Security: From the JCPOA to the International Court of Justice’
His lecture will present and analyse the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was concluded in 2015 and was integrated in the UN Security Council Resolution 2231, the reasons for the withdrawal of the United States two years later, and the follow-up of the dispute before the ICJ in the case Islamic Republic of Iran v. the United States of America on the Alleged Violations of the 1955 Treaty of Amity, Economic Relations, and Consular Rights. So far, the ICJ has indicated provisional measures through its Order from 3. October 2017, which raises significant questions of international law.
