The success of international courts and tribunals as dispute resolution bodies is to a large extent dependent on their legitimacy, which in turn is intertwined with concepts of transparency, fairness, accountability and legality. Accordingly, the manner and effectiveness of oversight and governance over these institutions is of crucial importance.

This Conference, funded by the Research Council of Norway and organised by Prof. Freya Baetens, seeks to provide a broad consideration of the nature, role, risks and challenges of oversight mechanisms in international dispute resolution. The conference will take place on 21-22 June 2023 at Jesus College, Oxford.

The Organiser welcomes abstracts from academics and practitioners, including staff of adjudicatory institutions and international organisations. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 28 April 2023. For more information, please see here.
