Recharacterising International Disputes: Exploring the Phenomenon of Multi-Fora Litigation - CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite you to submit an abstract of a paper to present at the conference on the topic of "Recharacterising International Disputes" which will be held at our Faculty of Law on 12 & 13 June 2024 in Maastricht.

With the proliferation of international and regional courts and tribunals, the number of disputes submitted to various regimes has significantly increased. International and regional dispute settlement bodies are more frequently addressing issues involving a broader set of norms and circumstances than those with which they are seised. This phenomenon is not new, but it has become more prevalent in recent decades. The phenomenon can be attributed to several factors, including the hyper-judicialisation of international crises and the growing use of international adjudicative bodies as part of forum shopping strategies and separate international lawfare tactics. In view of these, concerns about coherence and unity in the international legal order continue to surface. In light of this heightened practice, it is worth considering the norms, areas of law, and factual circumstances that give rise to this kind of recharaterisation of disputes and instances of multiple-fora litigation. Such consideration could shed light on the current challenges facing the international legal order and attempts to accommodate the diverse and evolving needs of the international community.

Interested applicants should submit an abstract (up to 400 words) and a brief author bio (up to 100 words) by the deadline of 31 January 2024. Please ensure that the author's name is clearly mentioned in the abstract file. More information can be found in the FULL CALL.
