Professor Giuseppe Nesi elected to the International Law Commission

NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 12 – After more than 10 years of absence, an Italian academic is back in the prestigious International Law Commission of the United Nations.
Giuseppe Nesi, Professor of International Law at the University of Trento, has been elected by the General Assembly with 152 votes in favor to the important body of 34 jurists whose delicate task is the codification and development of International Law.

In addition to his teaching and research, Professor Nesi has served as a legal advisor to the Italian Diplomatic Corps and to international institutions. Since 1992 he has been a Legal Counsellor to the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. His assignments have included Legal Adviser to the Italian Mission in New York (2002-2010) while in 2010-11 he was appointed Legal Adviser to the President of the UN General Assembly.

During his time in New York, he participated in numerous bilateral and multilateral negotiations on delicate and complex issues and represented Italy in all the activities of the Sixth Committee of the General Assembly and related bodies. He was the Vice-Chair of the Special Committee on the Charter of the United Nations and on the Strengthening of the Role of the Organization, and was the Legal Adviser of the Italian Delegation in the Security Council.

After the vote in the General Assembly, the Italian Permanent Representative to the UN, Maurizio Massari, took on Twitter to warmly thank the countries that supported Nesi’s candidacy. Professor Nesi follows in the footsteps of other illustrious Italian jurists who have served on the ILC in its more than 70 years histori: Roberto Ago, Gaetano Arangio-Ruiz, Luigi Ferrari Bravo and Giorgio Gaja, who all played an important role in some of the Commission’s most complex and significant codifications.
