Abstract

State immunity is an area that shows both the importance of international law for the conduct of international relations and the complex dynamics between law and politics. It is a crucial topic that has been the object of harsh critiques.

This paper reconsiders State immunity in light of the recent developments in some key decisions of international and domestic courts and tribunals. It is divided into two parts. After briefly introducing the concept of State immunity, it first analyses its development, and second assesses – and, to some extent, challenges – its alleged consolidation.
