International Dispute Settlement - LAW888

The intense interaction between different actors in the international system inevitably leads to opposing views on issues, as well as to conflict. This unit will consider traditional non-adversarial dispute settlement in the international system It will then focus on how various international courts and tribunals resolve disputes in different areas of international law (such as trade, investment, human rights, and international criminal law). Students will be placed in the position of a lawyer deciding on international litigation options. An ongoing question will be the effectiveness of these procedures, and the parties' compliance with the decisions of the different bodies.
