Francis A. Boyle is Professor of International Law at the University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign. On March 19, 1993, President Alija Izetbegovic of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina appointed him as Bosnia's General Agent before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) with Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Powers to institute, conduct, and defend against any and all litigation on behalf of Bosnia.
He then proceeded to win World Court Orders - on April 8, 1993, and September 13, 1993 - that supported Bosnia's case against the rump Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) to cease and desist from violating the 1948 Genocide Convention.
Pursuant to Boyle's recommendation, on November 15, 1993, President Izetbegovic instructed him to institute legal proceedings at the ICJ against the United Kingdom for violating the 1948 Genocide Convention and the 1965 Racial Discrimination Convention in order to break the arms embargo against Bosnia, as well as to stop the racist carve up of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina by the Contact Group Plan.
This volume documents the legal efforts by Professor Boyle to save the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina from the crime of genocide.
