International Litigation and the Disaggregation of Disputes: Ukraine/Russia as a Case Study

Abstract

The dispute over Crimea and eastern Ukraine is currently being litigated before a range of international courts and tribunals. The present article employs this as a case study to examine certain under-explored consequences of the disaggregation of broad inter-state disputes into discrete legal claims for the jurisdiction of international tribunals and the admissibility of those specific claims. A considerable variation in how international tribunals engage with disaggregation is revealed, and a range of different explanations for this are considered.
