Comparative Procedure in State-to-State Disputes

Tuesday 28 May 2019 - Wednesday 29 May 2019
Turfmarkt 99
2511 DP The Hague

The Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies organises a conference on “Comparative Procedure in State-to-State Disputes” on 28-29 May 2019 in The Hague.

The objective of the conference is to engage in a transversal and comparative analysis of the procedural aspects of the settlement of interstate disputes in international law. The conference will take stock of the procedure applicable in various interstate dispute settlement bodies, including international courts and tribunals and arbitration, but will also cover regional courts and tribunals. As the settlement of interstate disputes through recourse to courts and tribunals has grown gradually over the years, not only through the creation of new mechanisms to that effect but also through the use of existing courts and tribunals, the organizers of the conference are convinced that a comparative view and analysis of the procedure – in theory and practice- is beneficial to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of the various procedural rules and regulations, and in the end contribute to foment cross-fertilization between interstate dispute settlement bodies.

Attendance is free, but prior registration is necessary. Please register by sending an email with your name, affiliation and contact details to Ms. Sophie Mercer (grotiuscentre@law.leidenuniv.nl) before 20 May.
