About the Competition
Centre for Legal Studies, Gitarattan International Business School (GIBS) is organising the 2nd National Inter College Debate Competition.
Theme: INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS ARE PARAMOUNT TO ABSOLUTE STATE SOVEREIGNTY
‘Sovereignty’ is deeply embedded in international legal regime and ensures order, stability and predictability in international relations. This holds true for both customary international law as well as treaty-based international law, which are nothing but a
manifestation of state sovereignty.
The judgment of the International Court of Justice, in the case concerning Kulbhushan Jadhav, held in Pakistan on charges of “terrorism and espionage” has raised debates over the conflict between rights of a nation-state to prosecute an individual posing as a threat to its national security vs. the human rights obligations undertaken by it.
The court, in this case, has only directed Pakistan to grant consular access to him and has asked it to ‘review
and reconsider the conviction and sentence’, without ordering his release.
In this debate, an attempt would, thus, be made to deliberate upon the contentious legal issue of the conflict between two of the above discussed international issues of contemporary legal significance, i.e. Human Rights and State Sovereignty, in the context of the latest ICJ ruling pertaining to Kulbhushan Jadhav.
