Comparative Procedure in State-to-State Disputes


The objective of the conference is to engage in a transversal and comparative analysis of the procedural aspects of the settlement of interstate disputes in international law. The conference will take stock of the procedure applicable in various interstate dispute settlement bodies, including international courts and tribunals and arbitration, but will also cover regional courts and tribunals. As the settlement of interstate disputes through recourse to courts and tribunals has grown gradually over the years, not only through the creation of new mechanisms to that effect but also through the use of existing courts and tribunals, the organizers of the conference are convinced that a comparative view and analysis of the procedure – in theory and practice- is beneficial to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of the various procedural rules and regulations, and in the end contribute to foment cross-fertilization between interstate dispute settlement bodies.
