Science Award 2020 of the State of Lower Austria

October 15, 2020

Dr. Gabriel M. Lentner has been awarded the Science Award 2020 of the State of Lower Austria for his monograph on international law.

We are thrilled to announce that Dr Gabriel Lentner was conferred the Science Award 2020 by the State of Lower Austria for his monograph UN Security Council and  the International Criminal Court: The Referral Mechanism in Theory and Practice.

The award-winning monograph offers a comprehensive analysis of the relationship between the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and the International Criminal Court (ICC), centred on the referral mechanism. In it, Dr Lentner argues that the legal nature of the referral must be conceptualized as a conferral of powers from the UNSC to the ICC, on the basis of which the book explores the complex legal relationship between interacting international organizations.

The award ceremony took place on 30 September 2020.
