Chapter Summary

International jurisdiction seems nowadays to go beyond the framework of methods of peaceful settlement of international disputes. Its expansion in contemporary International Law responds and corresponds to a need of the international community of our times. The international rule of law finds expression no longer only at national, but also at international, level. The two aforementioned international human rights Tribunals have found themselves under the duty to preserve the integrity of the regional conventional system of protection of human rights as a whole. Compulsory jurisdiction is an expression of the rule of law at international level, conducive to a more cohesive international legal order inspired and guided by the imperative of justice. Contemporary international tribunals, working in a cooperative and complementary way, have the common mission of realization of justice at international level.
