Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses certain issues concerning the appointment of international judges. The broad issue of interest is this: is sufficient attention given to the appointment of our international judges? We know remarkably little about our international judges: who they are; their backgrounds; how they were selected to become candidates for election; and how they were actually elected. That information - and the decision-making processes that underpin the information - has traditionally been left in the hands of governing elites: politicians, senior civil servants and, very occasionally, members of the bench and bar and academe.

Keywords: ECHR; International Court of Justice (ICJ); international judges
