The Settlement of International Disputes

Basic Documents

Edited by: Antonios Tzanakopoulos, Christian J. Tams

This collection brings together a large number of primary sources on the peaceful settlement of disputes. The documents included reflect the diverse techniques of international dispute settlement as recognized in Articles 2(3) and 33 of the UN Charter, such as negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and adjudication. The book comprises the most relevant multilateral treaties establishing dispute settlement regimes, as well as examples of special agreements, compromissory clauses, optional clause declarations, and relevant resolutions of international organizations. It covers both diplomatic and adjudicative methods of dispute settlement and follows a basic division between general dispute settlement mechanisms and sectoral regimes in fields such as human rights, WTO law, investment, law of the sea, environmental law, and arms control. It is aimed at teachers, students, and practitioners of international law and related disciplines, and it is ideally suited as a companion volume for postgraduate courses.
