Abstract

This brief note analyses the landmark Al-Adsani judgement, in which the European Court of Human Rights held that immunity may be upheld even in the face of alleged breaches of jus cogens norms. It agrees with the Court's result, but draws attention to important flaws in the reasoning.

Keywords: jus cogens, state immunity, European Convention on Human Rights
