International Courts and Tribunals

Selected Documents and Materials (Second Revised Edition)

Edited by: Willem-Jan van der Wolf, Cecile Hoitink

This book provides a practical and comprehensive overview of the law and practice of all international courts and tribunals and a uniform and systemic presentation of all the relevant information for each court and tribunal. Over the past decade, there has been an increase in the development and use of international law. The rise in the number of international courts and tribunals, and the enlargement of their legal powers, has been one of the most important developments in international law. The emergence of an international judiciary has provided international law with stronger-than-ever enforcement institutes and facilitated the transformation of many aspects of international relations. This second edition updates the first edition by describing the many legal changes that have taken place in the last few years, including important reforms and developments in the laws and procedures of many international courts and tribunals, including a new body: the Extraordinary Chambers in the Court of Cambodia.
