PluriCourts studies the legitimacy of international courts and tribunals (ICs) from legal, political science and philosophical perspectives. The centre explores the normative, legal and empirical soundness of charges of illegitimacy, to understand and assess how ICs do, could and should respond.
PluriCourts explores the multidimensional legitimacy standards which include multilevel separation of authority, independence and accountability, performance and comparative advantages. PluriCourts also aims to identify best practices and models to establish, improve or abolish ICs.
