The Multiple Roles of International Courts and Tribunals: Enforcement, Dispute Settlement, Constitutional and Administrative Review

Public Deposited

In order to understand the role of international courts (ICs) in the international legal system, this chapter examines 25 permanent international courts by analyzing four roles that states have delegated to courts: enforcement, administrative review, constitutional review, and dispute settlement. The chapter finds that ICs can become not only agents of the states who create them, but also trustees of the law, creating checks on sovereign authority in ways member states never intended. The chapter concludes by examining how ICs might undermine domestic democracy.2-
