Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter reviews the six tribunals examined in terms of their exercise of jurisdiction have contributed substantially to an understanding of the jurisdiction of international tribunals. The tribunals have been created, in general, some to decide disputes only between states, some to decide disputes between states and persons, whether natural or juridical, and some to decide disputes between international organizations and individuals. In the case of every one of these tribunals, there has been occasion for it to have to decide on the existence of jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of the tribunals flows from constituent instruments and other instruments relating to jurisdiction as relevant in each case. This emphasizes the fact that all the tribunals have limited and assigned jurisdiction and do not have general jurisdiction. It has been seen that jurisdiction covers both compétence and matters pertaining to recevabilité.
