About the event

On March 16th 2023, the FGV Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on EU-South America Global Governance organised the Workshop ‘Transforming the Role of International Courts and Tribunals in a New Era of Adjudication’. 

International Courts and Tribunals (ICTs) are increasingly touching upon international and domestic politically-sensitive issues. The more the ICTs move into new areas of global public concern, the more appropriate it is to provide for some method of participation in order to hear all relevant interests involved. Therefore, demands for greater legitimacy and transparency have been gaining momentum in recent years. It is up to ICTs, and to the World Court in particular, to find the balance between States’ rights and commonly aspired goals and its role of addressing the provision of common interests, without ignoring the geopolitical implications of their judgments. 

The programme featured internationally distinguished speakers from renowned higher education institutions. The keynote speech was addressed by Laurence Boisson de Chazournes (University of Geneva), followed by the first panel on International Courts and Tribunals: Current Challenges, with the participation of Diego P. Fernández Arroyo (Sciences Po Law School), Jean-Marc Sorel (Sorbonne Law School, University of Paris 1), Serena Forlati (University of Ferrara) and Miriam Cohen (University of Montreal). 

The second panel on the topic Working with Large Databases on International Courts was chaired by Ely Caetano Xavier Junior (Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro) and featured selected paper presentations on projects concerning empirical legal methods and ICTs. The first presentation was addressed by Seán Fobbe (Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich), with remarks by FGV professors and researchers: Raphael Tinarrage (FGV EMAp), Henrique Ennes (FGV EMAp), Lucas Thevenard Gomes (FGV Rio Law) and José Luiz Nunes (FGV Rio Law). 

The closing remarks on The Mixed Methods Turn in Studying Courts was addressed by Malcolm Langford (University of Oslo).
