I'm teaching a class on the UN so obviously we are looking at this every week. A really useful resource is the site where livestreams and recordings of various UN meetings can be watched. If we are very lucky, sometimes it's even while a class is taking place:media.un.org

Can Ukraine and the international community trust any agreement the Russians sign?The brief ceasefire was broken after less then a day and Russia historically agreed not to invade Ukraine when they surrendered their nuclear weapons. Is it just a reality that no agreement can really be trusted regarding the Russian Federation?
Benjamin von Werdt

Is there a precedent for international recognition of the "international army" that Ukraine has been asking for, i.e. offering service contracts to individuals even if they are not citizens? If not, might this serve as a precedent for the future or could Ukraine possibly face its own consequences for such actions, once things have calmed down?

If the ICJ's decisions are legally binding, who would enforce them? Would it be the UNSC, and if so, could Russia interfere with enforcement of a ruling against them?

A quick question for David, did the ICJ impose interim measures in the original case you mentioned which is now at the merits stage. Also wondering about the role of the European Court of Human Rights. I understand the court still has jurisdiction despite Russia's suspension from the CoE (I think). What role is there for the court, if any, going forward?

I have to head off, sorry. Thanks for sharing your insights. I am glad that, at the end, the racialisation of ppl seeking international protection was mentioned. It is an important aspect of what is happening. I have been reading and re-reading this paper ( https://www.jstor.org/stable/40338534?seq=1#metadata_info_tab_contents ) , it has provided for me good guidelines to make sense of what war allows to happen, in times of emergency etc. Thanks.
