Courts & Tribunals
The role of international courts and tribunals is essential in providing accountability mechanisms in cases of violations of international law. International courts and tribunals can differ greatly in their function, from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) which settles disputes between states to the International Criminal Court which investigates and tries individuals charged with international crimes.
BIICL provides a forum for experts to debate the role of courts and discuss recent developments cases. The Institute has also regularly contributed to the debate through its research and publications in the area.
