It is time to share some news regarding this blog, for those who are interested.
First of all, I have been trying for almost a week now to transfer The International Jurist to its own web host with WordPress.org. The result I have so far is here: http://www.theinternationaljurist.org. I am not nearly as happy with it as I thought I would be, the theme not corresponding to the one available here on WordPress.com, and the whole transfer/setting up was a lot more complicated than I expected.
As matter of fact, if there are WordPress(.org) experts among readers of this blog, please contact me. I have a few questions for you.
Until I get theinternationaljurist.org working as it should, the blog will remain here hosted at wordpress.com.
On another note, my internship with the Coalition for the International Criminal Court has, regretfully, come to an end. It was a great experience in The Hague, and I consider myself very luck to have been able to work closely with the International Criminal Court, to have had the chance to get a global view of the issues facing the recently created Court, and of course, to work with such wonderful people at the CICC, to whom I wish all the best in confronting the difficult challenges 2011 is sure to offer.
The reason I am mentioning this here is because my departure from the CICC and The Hague will without a doubt have an impact on my writing. For the past 6-8 months, I have written a lot on the ICC. The reasons for that are 1) because I believe in writing about what you know, and 2) that my work at the CICC gave me the opportunity to access public but little-covered information that I believed would be of interest to readers.
But now that I am back in Lyon, the content is going to be inevitably far less ICC-centric than it has been these past months. I will of course continue to nurture an interest in what happens at the ICC, and in the field of international criminal justice in general, but I also want to write about other subjects, and perhaps focus a bit more on my other center of interest: the legal issues arising in counterterrorism policy and the ways international law needs to adapt to better apprehend the emergence of regional or global non-State armed groups.
In any case, stay tuned for more!
