The Invocation of the Exception of Non-Performance, A Case-Study on the Role and Application of General Principles of International Law of Contractual Origin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article focuses exclusively on the exceptio defense and uses it as a pretext to observe the process of identification, interpretation and application of general principles of international law drawn from domestic civil law doctrines. It argues that, in the FYROM v Greece case, it is argued that this step-by-step analysis, if performed by the Court, would have not changed the outcome of the case, a different approach by the ICJ could have helped to further elucidate the role of general principles in international law.
