PluriCourts and Temple University Workshop: The Performance of International Courts

On 8-9 October 2015, PluriCourts and Temple University held a workshop on The Performance of International Courts, a forthcoming book edited by Theresa Squatrito, Oran Young, Geir Ulfstein, and Andreas Føllesdal, and published by Cambridge University Press. The project is motivated by the expansion of international courts and tribunals in recent decades, and the apparent variation in their performance. These developments raise several questions regarding how to conceptualize and measure international courts’ performance, what explains variation in their performance, and whether there are ways to improve their performance.
