TOWARDS A UNIVERSAL JUSTICE? PUTTING INTERNATIONAL COURTS AND JURISDICTIONS INTO PERSPECTIVE

 PRESENTATION

 

The recent proliferation of international courts and jurisdictions raises a number of important issues concerning the coherence of the international legal order in this respect. One may, inter alia, ask: a) To what extent do the jurisdictional powers of these courts overlap? b) How can they assist each other? c) Is the case-law of each of those courts of any use in the other court’s opinions? d) Do they abide by identical rules in matters of procedure? The Portuguese branch of the International Law Association will organize in September 2014 a regional conference addressing these issues. The conference will include as speakers well-known judges and scholars, several of which from Portuguese-speaking countries around the world, such as Angola, Brazil and Cape Verde. It will also give young researchers the opportunity of presenting their papers. The conference will be hosted by the Law School of the University of Lisbon, Portugal’s largest institution of legal education and research.
