Borgen’s First Two Installments on The Peace Palace at 100 at Opinio Juris

Earlier this week, we posted on Professor Borgen‘s recent trip to The Hague as part of a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Peace Palace.   As part of the commemoration, Professor Borgen, who is the St. John’s Associate Dean for International Studies, is writing a series of essays about events at The Hague on Opinio Juris, the blog he co-founded with Professor Peggy McGuinness and others nine years ago.  The first two posts in the series are here and here.  The first piece, Blogging from The Hague: The Peace Palace Centennial, introduces the series and provides an outline of the conference.   The second piece, Peace Palace at 100: Getting Reintroduced to the Permanent Court of Arbitration, recounts conversations from the conference with Secretary General Hugo Hans Siblesz and Senior Counsel Sarah Grimmer of the Permanent Court of Arbitration.   Borgen states, “The main take-away from the PCA meetings is how rapidly its case-load has increased and changed in the last ten years.”
