Establishing Judicial Authority in International Economic Law

By Joanna Jemielniak, Laura Nielsen & Henrik Palmer Olsen (Eds.), Published by Cambridge University Press, July 2016

The intensified juridification of international relations by a growing number of international courts is a central development in international law. This book discusses how international judicial authority is established and managed in key fields of international economic law: trade law, investor–state arbitration and international commercial arbitration. The analysis explores the interplay between these areas of economic dispute resolution, tracing their parallel developments and identifying the ways they influence each other on mechanisms and solutions. Drawing together contributions from many scholars, this volume considers issues such as the usage of precedent and the role of legitimacy, suggesting that the consolidation of judicial authority is a universal trend which impacts on state behaviour.
