Chapter Summary

The Statute makes provision for the establishment of special chambers, both standing and ad hoc, for dealing with disputes. The Statute confers discretionary powers on the Tribunal to form special chambers as standing chambers for dealing with "particular categories of disputes", with each chamber being composed of three or more of the elected Members of the Tribunal. The Tribunal is also empowered to form an ad hoc chamber for dealing with "a particular dispute" submitted to it, if the parties so request. The members of special chambers are selected upon the proposal of the President of the Tribunal. The Members who are to constitute an ad hoc chamber are "determined" by the Tribunal, with the approval of the parties to a dispute.
