IILA worked with Botswana in the following international law capability-enhancing project:

Decolonization of the Chagos Islands: With questions remaining over whether the continued control of the Chagos Islands by the United Kingdom violated the process of decolonization in the 1960s, and the continued claims of self-determination by the Chagossians, IILA supported Botswana in its presentation to the International Court of Justice in The Hague in its hearing on this matter, providing international law ideas to permit Botswana’s own understanding and voice to resonate more fully at the Court.
