Chapter Summary

This chapter critically analyzes the traditional methods of international dispute settlement. It begins with a general overview of the public/private international law dichotomy, and of the general elements and purposes of international dispute settlement. This brief background provides the context for the consideration of the applicability of these mechanisms of international dispute settlement to disputes relating to outer space. The classical means of international dispute settlement examined in the chapter are negotiation; consultations; inquiry & fact-finding; mediation & good offices; conciliation; arbitration; claims commissions; and judicial settlement. In each case, a brief overview of the process is critiqued in the light of its experiences on the international plane. Each of these processes is then assessed as to their applicability to disputes arising from activities in outer space.

Keywords: claims commissions; international dispute settlement; judicial settlement; private international law dichotomy; public international law dichotomy; space law
