Course Content The focus of the lecture is on the various mechanisms of peaceful settlement of disputes between states. There are two broad categories of mechanisms available: diplomatic or political mechanisms for the settlement of disputes (notification, consultation, negotiation, good offices, mediation, inquiry, conciliation) or judicial mechanisms (arbitration, International Court of Justice, other international courts as well as international legal fora). Finally, the new mechanisms of dispute settlement between states and individuals in the areas of human rights law and of international investment law will be scrutinized. The lecture connects the transfer of knowledge with analyzing several practical examples. A detailed outline of the lecture is available online at the website of the Walther Schücking Institute (www.wsi.uni-kiel.de).
Reading list An index of relevant literature will be published online at the website of the Walther Schuecking Institute (www.wsi.uni-kiel.de).
