Institute Alumnus Wins Paul Guggenheim Prize in International Law

In a video interview, Dr Vladyslav Lanovoy, Associate Legal Officer at the International Court of Justice, discusses how his work contributed to furthering international law and how his studies at the Institute prepared him to become an international lawyer.

The Paul Guggenheim Prize in International Law was jointly attributed to Vladyslav Lanovoy, who authored a study on “Complicity and its limits in the Law of International Responsibility”, and Marina Aksenova, for her monograph on “Complicity in International Criminal Law”. 

The Prize was created in 1981 and is awarded every two years to a young specialist in the field of international law and author of a first monograph of outstanding quality on a subject of general interest, likely to make a real contribution to the study of international law. The award ceremony for the 2017 Prize winners was held on 15 April 2019 at the Graduate Institute.
