The dispute between Argentina and Uruguay arose out of the authorizations given by Uruguay in 2002 for the construction of a pulp mill (the CMB (ENCE) project), and in 2003 for the construction and commissioning of another (the Orion (Botnia) mill) both on the banks of the River Uruguay, a shared natural resource and the common border between these countries. I present a brief analysis of the reasoning of the Court in the 2010 Case Concerning Pulp Mills on the River Uruguay, with special attention on the questions of the environmental impact assessment and the consultation of affected populations.
