This chapter discusses the nature of international dispute resolution and the obligation to settle disputes peacefully; the means by which international arbitral and judicial bodies are established; the impacts of new judicial and quasi-judicial bodies and tribunals upon international law; the various non-judicial means by which international disputes can be settled; including negotiation, mediation, conciliation, inquiry and good offices; the features of international arbitration that distinguish this form of dispute resolution from both judicial and non-judicial mechanisms; the role, operation and influence of the International Court of Justice, including the contentious and advisory jurisdiction of the Court, and the legal effect and enforcement of its decisions; the dispute resolution mechanisms established by economic and trade institutions and other major tribunals; and the international and regional bodies created to provide access to individuals for the protection and enforcement of their human rights.
