During his long career in the Foreign Service of his native Cyprus, Ambassador Andrew Jacovides has combined the practice of diplomacy with an abiding interest in international law.

Having been an outstanding student at the University of Cambridge and the Harvard Law School, he represented the Republic of Cyprus from its inception at the United Nations, other international organizations, in Washington, D.C. (rising to the position of Dean of its Diplomatic Corps) and to just reunited Germany, among other postings.

Parallel to this, he has been an active international lawyer, contributing to … read morethe promotion of international law at such major conferences as the Law of Treaties and the Law of the Sea, as a three-term elected member of the U.N. International Law Commission, and at the Legal (Sixth) Committee of the General Assembly.

He has also been a UNCC Commissioner, a Dormant Swiss Accounts Tribunal and ICSID (World Bank) Arbitrator and a banker (Bank of Cyprus). International Law and Diplomacy is a distillation of his contribution to international law and diplomacy for the past half century. It will provide useful insights for international lawyers, diplomats, United Nations officials, and students of public affairs.
