The ESIL Interest Group on International Courts and Tribunals (IGICT) provides an opportunity for members of the European Society of International Law to discuss central issues related to international courts and tribunals.
The increasing number of international courts and tribunals (ICs) in recent years has sparked great interest because of the many theoretical and practical ramifications deriving from it. The ESIL Interest Group on International Courts and Tribunals fosters further discussion of the legal aspects of these ICs among European scholars and practitioners.

Senior Research Fellow, Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law
