International courts and tribunals, edited by William A. Schabas

Beginning about a century ago, but with a dramatic acceleration of the process in the final decades of the 1900s, international courts and tribunals have taken a prominent place in the enforcement of international law, the maintenance of international peace and security and the protection and promotion of human rights. This book addresses the great diversity of these institutions, their structures and legal frameworks and their contribution to the international rule of law. With an original introduction by Professor Schabas, this important volume will be of interest to students, academics and professionals with an interest in international courts and tribunals
