Abstract

This essay offers a sketch of the author's political theory of international courts and tribunals. First, it suggests two basic distinctions between types of international tribunals. Second, an overview of selected political science literature is provided to introduce a more expanded view of the function of international courts. Third, the essay provides a sketch of the bounded strategic space theory as a means for understanding and explaining international courts and tribunals.
