Deference in International Courts and Tribunals

Standard of Review and Margin of Appreciation

Edited by Lukasz Gruszczynski and Wouter Werner

  • Provides a detailed analysis of how far international courts and tribunals have deferred to national judgments, and where their approaches have diverged
  • Investigates deference through the prism of the standard of review and margin of appreciation, showing how these doctrines have been applied in a range of international courts
  • Exposes the variety of approaches by international courts, including the International Court of Justice and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, and shows their impact on the perceived incoherence of international jurisprudence
