Dispute Settlement and Adjudication in International and European Law

Research strand

Coordinator: Dr Geoff Gordon

The courts and tribunals of The Hague and beyond aim to provide procedural and substantive fairness and predictability in the adjudication, arbitration and mediation of international conflicts, conflicts arising among an increasingly diverse range of parties, public and private, and concerning an increasingly diverse and contentious range of issues. The research strand Dispute Settlement and Adjudication in International and European Law is organised around inquiry into attributes of trustworthy dispute settlement in international adjudication. On the basis of our diverse expertise in public and private international law, as well as transnational law and legal theory, this research strand examines the many dimensions of adequate dispute settlement. It explores new, alternative and interdisciplinary methods for analysing fundamental changes in international institutions and in international law.
