Chapter Summary

Many States, including the United Kingdom, continue to attach paramount importance to the qualities of the candidates in deciding for whom to vote, and by extension in deciding in respect of whom they are prepared to enter into deals. But this is not necessarily the case with all of the electorate. The focus of this chapter is on the domestic nomination stage, and in particular recent British practice in relation to certain courts and tribunals. There are three main stages to be considered in the election of international judges: the qualifications; the national selection procedures; and the election or appointment procedures. The Centre for International Courts and Tribunals at the Faculty of Laws of University College, London is currently undertaking a three-year Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded study entitled "Process and Legitimacy in the Nomination, Election and Appointment of International Judges".

Keywords: international court; international judicial office; international law; national selection procedures; nomination of candidates; tribunals
