Chapter Summary

This chapter summaries and analyses the recent developments in international dispute settlement in comparable fields of law. There are five international institutional contexts where dispute settlement mechanisms have been implemented and modified from diverse rationales. The first is the utilization of mechanisms for both compliance control and dispute settlement. In particular, a noteworthy example is the institutional régime for the regulation of the environment under international environmental law. The second comparable mechanism is the dispute settlement processes within international trade and financial institutions. The third mechanism is the middle-of-the-road approach taken in the protection of human rights at the regional level. The fourth focuses on the enforcement of the rule of law in the world’s common spaces of great economic, scientific and environmental interest. The last addresses the more direct alternative to the use of armed force, which is the practice of good office by the Secretary-General of the UN.

Keywords: armed force; financial institutions; institutional treaty compliance régime; international dispute settlement; international environmental law; international trade; middle-of-the-road approach; outer space
