Special Issue - Resistance to International Courts: Introduction and Conclusion
Today, international courts (ICs) are seemingly under pressure from a range of actors, including states, civil society and even legal professionals. At least that is the impression one gets from reading the press and specialised international law blogs. The question is, however, whether such conclusions are premature or are depicting an exaggerated picture of the state of international legal affairs.
Drawing on a set of case-studies of resistance to ICs across the world, this special issue provides a first ever comparative empirical assessment of instances and types of resistance to ICs.
