Erna is pleased to announce that the Persian-language edition of The Sun Climbs Slow: The International Criminal Court and the Struggle for Justice has been published by Enteshar Publication Co.,Tehran. In addition to being made available to the general public, the book will be studied by Iranian law students. In a separate edition, students will have access to the Rome Statute, the legal treaty that underlies the workings of the ICC.
That a book about the rise of international law, human rights, and the emergence of the International Criminal Court has been published in Iran, with the permission of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, is a matter of interest, especially in the current environment of international sanctions against Iran and the threat of attack on nuclear facilities.
The translator is Sayyed Khalil Khalilian, an Iranian lawyer and a former judge of the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal in The Hague. Erna would like to thank Mr. Khalilian, whose commitment to global justice and the values of international humanitarian law led him to undertake this translation project on his own account.
