Book description

Litigating International Law Disputes provides a fresh understanding of why states resort to international adjudication or arbitration to resolve international law disputes. A group of leading scholars and practitioners discern the reasons for the use of international litigation and other modes of dispute settlement by examining various substantive areas of international law (such as human rights, trade, environment, maritime boundaries, territorial sovereignty and investment law) as well as considering case studies from particular countries and regions. The chapters also canvass the roles of international lawyers, NGOs, and private actors, as well as the political dynamics of disputes, and identify emergent trends in dispute settlement for different areas of international law.


'Litigating International Law Disputes is a highly structured compilation of works where each contribution takes its own place in, and brings its own added value, to the collective endeavor … Two of the greatest strengths of the book are the diversity of its contributors and the important number of practitioners who have participated … What distinguishes this compilation from others is its interdisciplinary nature.'

'Klein’s edited collection constitutes … a valuable addition to the literature on the settlement of international disputes. Despite many issues being inherently political, the book successfully ties them to the law, without losing sight of the aim of clarifying why states litigate at the international level. The reviewer recommends Natalie Klein’s book to all those who already have a grasp of international dispute settlement … the initiated reader will surely find many precious insights of both an academic and practical nature.'
