Judicial Remedies in International Law

Synopsis

The first comprehensive study of judicial remedies in international law, this book begins with a close examination of the early development of judicial remedies through the varied practice of international arbitral tribunals. Gray then goes on to evaluate the significance of the contributions made by the Permanent Court of International Justice, its successor the International Court of Justice, and specialized tribunals such as the European and American courts of human rights and the United Nations administrative tribunal. The author finally considers whether recent international commercial arbitration offers a new approach to the question of judicial remedies.

Excerpt

This book is impressive in combining the characteristics of boldness of theme, rigour of treatment of the material, and a mature style. Dr. Gray has produced a classical study of problems which are persistent in the international system and which, whilst having a highly practical nature, relate to important questions affecting the essence of the judicial function in international relations. International lawyers always pay tribute to the principle of judicial settlement of disputes, but in recent times most writers have tended to avoid touching on the particular questions falling under the fairly loose headings of the 'judicial function' or 'State responsibility'. the present study subjects many of these particular questions to careful examination and can be expected to occupy a prominent place in the literature.
