Sunday Smack

Spread the love

Happy Sunday, everybody!

As of today, I am off to vacation, so this is a pre-scheduled post.

I had an unexpectedly busy week with lots of work to do and so little time remaining for other important things. Among the latter: taking the final exam of the

International Law in Action: A Guide to the International Courts and Tribunals in The Hague course I participated in recently on Coursera. I managed to finish the course Saturday night. Midnight, to be exact, after a tiresome day of touristing around (with a real tourist) in Budapest, and, uhm, also a glass of wine. Now I can’t wait to just lie on the beach with a stock of books to read. I hope the weather will be great! And also, two weeks of sports excitements have started already! I will be all #GoHungary of course (two gold medals already by Sunday morning!!), but I am also with #TeamRefugees, because what they are representing deserves respect.

Here’s your weekend read.

A great account of different case law regarding this very delicate issue. I still think that every case is different and each deserves unique deliberation.
