For the most part the Belfast Project case has gotten little attention in the international law blogosphere (aside from here at Letters Blogatory, of course). Now Joanna Harrington has published an interesting look at the case at EJIL that is well worth a read for its very clear summary of some of the main issues. Harrington, like other commentators who have taken a look at the case, ended up incurring the wrath of Ed Moloney, and so I welcome her to a club of which I and Niall O’Dowd are charter members.
