International Court of Justice (ICJ)

First Issue: 

Application of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (Qatar v. United Arab Emirates)

In June 2017, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Egypt decided to boycott Qatar, accusing them of funding terrorist groups. Qatar then proceeded to take this issue to the International Court of Justice, with the belief that the aforementioned countries, being lead by the UAE, have been racially discriminating against the Qataris. Qatar believes that the UAE is guilty of breaching the terms of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) by deporting the Qataris that are in the UAE and banning other Qataris from entering or passing through the UAE. Qatar is asking for compensation for the damage done by the UAE’s alleged actions.

 

Second Issue:

Jadhav Case (India v. Pakistan)

Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested on March 3, 2013 due to allegedly working for an Indian spying agency and being involved with terrorism. India deny those claims and say that Jadhav has had no ties to the Indian government since retiring in 2001.
