Abstract

Only a small subset of international disputes ever reaches international courts and tribunals. Despite the growing prominence of judicial and arbitral proceedings, adjudication is just the tip of the iceberg. Diplomacy still reigns supreme in settling international disputes, especially when confidentiality and flexibility matter. To this day, negotiations remain the predominant tool to manage and settle international disputes.

Keywords: Negotiation, International Disputes, State Responsibility, Settlement

JEL Classification: K33
