International Courts and Tribunals

The Interest Group on International Courts and Tribunals focuses on the work of the many existing and proposed international judicial and arbitral bodies. Its aim is to monitor and provide information and commentary on the work of all international courts and tribunals, as well as hybrid and international tribunals. Our focus includes the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, regional human rights courts, and ad hoc international arbitral tribunals. The Group is interested in both the process and the substance of decision-making and aims at analyzing and understanding how, where and by whom international decisions are taken.

The Interest Group will periodically circulate information on the development in this important field, including commentaries of decisions and changes and developments in composition, procedures and formation of these bodies. It also focuses on aspects of possible overlapping jurisdiction and the development of common principles. The Group wants to be relevant to practitioners and academics alike and encourages discussion and exchange of ideas between all those involved in this field. It will organize at least one event per year on issues of significance in this field and will participate fully in the annual meeting.
