Summer School: The Law and Practice of International Dispute Settlement

The Amsterdam Center for International Law (ACIL) of the University of Amsterdam and the T.M.C. Asser Instituut are pleased to announce the launch of the Summer School on ‘The Law and Practice of International Dispute Settlement’. The programme will explore both pressing and perennial issues in international adjudication and dispute settlement, from the combined perspectives of practice and public interests.

We will critically examine together how processes of dispute settlement are structured, and how different mechanisms of dispute settlement compare. We will also consider the practical constraints that lawyers and judges encounter at all levels of the international adjudicatory process. We will in addition take a step back, to query how the thriving practice of international courts and tribunals may be understood and assessed.
