Abstract

This article discusses the issues raised by Georgia’s application against Russia at the International Court of Justice. On 12 August 2008, the Republic of Georgia lodged an application with the International Court of Justice (the ICJ) against the Russian Federation in connection with the armed conflict which occurred in the South Caucasus in summer 2008. In its application Georgia complained of violations committed by the Russian Federation under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (the CERD) in the context of Russian interventions in South Ossetia and Abkhazia from 1990 onwards, up to and including the August 2008 armed conflict.
