International Dispute Settlement - LAW888

This unit explores the peaceful resolution of international disputes within the broader principles of international law, particularly the maintenance of international peace and security. It will consider the role and objects of different international actors in dispute settlement. The Unit will also undertake a detailed consideration of the applicable law in international courts and tribunals (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. Having also considered compliance and enforcement of decisions of international courts and tribunals, students will critically evaluate the utility and effectiveness of different dispute resolution mechanisms.
