CONSULAR PROTECTION IN THE PRACTICE OF THE INTERNATIONAL COURT OF JUSTICE

Blešić Jovana (Doktorand Pravnog fakulteta Univerziteta u Beogradu), jovanab011@gmail.com

The author analyzes the concept of consular protection. At the beginning of the paper, the author deals with Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, regarding the nature of the right it provides. Later, the author considers two very important cases brought before the International Court of Justice: the La Grand case and the Avena case. Using these two cases, the author wants to emphasize the importance of the current case in front of the ICJ: the Jadhav case between India and Pakistan. Discussing former disagreements and disputes between these two states and pointing out to similarities between this case and both the La Grand and the Avena, the author tries to predict the verdict in this case expected in the near future.

Keywords: consular protection, the International Court of Justice, the Jadhav case
