It deals mainly with the throughout aftermath and carefully studied prospective of the controversy on the application and interpretation of the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the current issues to assure the protection of consular rights of foreigners detained abroad.
This case is, in the own interpretation of the International Court of Justice, the culmination of a trilogy of cases on consular rights presented before it. This work intends to provide the unfamiliar reader with the basic tools to understand the questions surrounding Avena and its transcendence in the topic of consular protection not only for Mexico and the United States, but for all countries party to the same Convention.
