Show Summary Details


A Festschrift is by definition a celebration; yet of its nature it nevertheless tends to be a solemn and weighty affair. In the case of Bruno Simma, the result is that the tributes paid to him in this volume — painstaking and erudite, generous and well-deserved, as they are — do not reflect a side of him that his friends, and all those who have worked with him, know well and greatly appreciate: his slightly mischievous sense of humour. This chapter presents some light-hearted verses related to three of the cases dealt with by the International Court of Justice during Bruno's term of office.

Keywords: Bruno Simma; Festschrift; verses; cases; International Court of Justice
