What is expected to do on the assignment? You are expected to demonstrate each of the following:1. an understanding of the historical and theoretical backdrop against which the case emerged; 2. a clear grasp of the key concepts at play in the case;3. an understanding of the importance of the case to international law;4. an appreciation of the possible future implications for international law in the principal areas touched on in the case.There is no winning “formula” for this paper. You are expected to read with care, and thoughtful- ly discuss the case, its foundations, and its implications. But you must always bear in mind that this is a course in public international law. So whatever approach you take to the paper must be able to significantly engage the principal concepts of international law at stake in the case.A careful reading of each should offer you enough material to write a top-notch paper. That being said, this term’s assigned case has given rise to a very significant literature. Should you wish to incorporate other materials external to the required course readings, you are permitted to do so. This is not, however, strictly required.You should note that there is a research question implied in the title of the case: i.e. What are the “legal consequences of the separation of the Chagos Archipelago from Mauritius in 1965”?
