'Diplomatic and Judicial Means of Dispute Settlement' addresses a question of growing practical and theoretical importance in international law: the synergies and potential conflicts among different means of settling international disputes. The contributing authors, who include some of the world's leading academics and practitioners, analyze various areas where such interactions have become ever more frequent, such as the law of territorial disputes, international criminal law, international trade law, investment arbitration, and human rights. The ground-breaking new volume aims to provide both a survey of prominent case-studies and an analytical framework to foster research on this increasingly important topic.
