Resumen


Este artículo tiene como objetivo analizar la sentencia de la Corte Internacional de Justicia (CIJ) del caso “Whaling in the Antarctic”, Australia c. Japón (Nueva Zelanda interviniente), particularmente respecto de cómo surgió y se desarrolló la controversia, y cómo este caso puede convertirse en un hito respecto del rol de los peritos en los juicios que se adelanten ante la cij, porque con la postura sostenida se evitan prácticas poco transparentes o que pueden afectar el debido proceso. También se analizará el estándar de revisión fijado por la cij para determinar qué es ciencia y qué no lo es. Se evidenciará cómo ese estándar permite inconsistencias que se pueden apreciar en la propia sentencia, y se sugiere que otros métodos más puntuales, considerados por la CIJ, podrían salvar los inconvenientes
de ese estándar de revisión.
