    • New edition of the definitive work on international dispute settlement
    • Provides a clear and comprehensive analysis of the institutions and common procedures of the international system of dispute settlement
    • Examines the fundamental problems created by the proliferation of dispute resolution mechanisms, assessing potential means to avoid creating incoherence in the system

    New to this edition

    • Retains the first edition's ground-breaking structure, and builds on it to deliver a comprehensive view of the modern international system of dispute settlement
    • New sections on the role of domestic courts in dispute settlement; evidence and the conduct of counsel in international adjudication; and the key differences between global and sectoral regimes
    • Addresses the challenges ahead in view of the proliferation, progressive specialization, and 'compartmentalization' of dispute settlement mechanisms

    The fully revised and updated new edition of this authoritative work provides a clear and detailed analysis of the institutions and procedures for the settlement of international disputes. There has been a continued expansion of the number of international tribunals and the number of cases before international courts in recent years. The proliferation of such fora and of the jurisprudence they generate has made it essential to understand and regulate evolving and competing jurisdictions. This new edition authoritatively sets out the substance and procedure of the law of international dispute settlement in the context of these new developments.

    The first part of the book examines the different methods and institutions of dispute settlement. It introduces the most important dispute settlement methods and discusses the role of domestic courts in settling international disputes. It assesses the institutions of general jurisdiction, notably the International Court of Justice, and the various sectoral regimes of dispute settlement. Part two provides a comprehensive examination of procedure before an international court or tribunal. It sets out the shared elements of procedure, while also highlighting the important procedural differences between the various international courts and arbitral bodies. This section includes an discussion of the law of evidence and the conduct of counsel in international adjudication. The third part focuses on the problems facing the system of international dispute settlement as a result of the proliferation of dispute resolution mechanisms, and the augmenting specialization and fragmentation of international law. It analyses the various ways competing jurisdictions can be regulated to avoid creating conflicting decisions, and the resultant systemic incoherence. The book remains essential reading for both students of international law and international legal practitioners.

  • Review(s) from previous edition

    "This book has, according to the authors, 'the modest aim of introducing readers to some of the main processes for the settlement of international disputes'. It does so admirably. [It is] a useful introduction to procedural issues in arbitration ... this is a thorough and comprehensive work, covering much ground in a very clear manner. It is particularly well footnoted, something of especial importance, in this reviewer's opinion, in an introductory work. In this reviewer's mind it is much the best introductory work on the subject ... it seems likely that it will become Ithe textbook for courses on international litigation and the settlement of international disputes. - Matthew Happold, NLR 2000.

    "a valuable addition to the literature on dispute settlement ... will appeal to ... students of international law and international relations, and practitioners seeking easily accessible information about the role and function of the various means of dispute resolution." - Christian Tams, European Journal of International Law Vol 11 No 3 2000

    "The two learned authors will need no introduction and their expertise in both public and private international law is a matter of record. While it is less usual today for public international lawyers to also specialise in private international law this volume does indicate the value of having a detailed knowledge of both subjects. It has to be recognised that the two writers have produced an impressive volume that is clearly destined to be a standard text in this field ... This volume is a considerable addition to the literature in this area and is to be welcomed ... The authors are both to be congratulated on a significant contribution to the literature ... As is only to be expected from Oxford University Press the text is handsomely produced." - Law Update 2000

    "This new book... is... a welcome addition to recent works on dispute resolution... One of the distinguishing features of the book is the combination of the analysis of the settlement of interstate disputes and disputes in which private parties are involved... In one respect, the authors have managed, I believe, to achieve almost the impossible. In only 273 pages they describe succinctly, but at the same time exhaustively, structures and procedures of almost all the most important international mechanisms of dispute resolution, and analyse rather incisively various aspects of some prominent cases decided by these mechanisms and procedures. I do not know of any other work that discusses these issues so concisely and clearly." - Rein Mullerson, International Affairs Vol.76 No.3
