PluriCourts (University of Oslo), iCourts (University of Copenhagen) and the Research Group on Global and Regional Governance (Stockholm University) are organizing a concepts & methods workshop on performance and legitimation.
The workshop approaches international courts from the perspective of political science, law and philosophy. Day 1 (“Performance”) covers a wide range of issues, including the performance of international courts; the performance of international organizations; methods of interpretation and design of remedies; quantitative court citation analysis; and measuring systemic bias.
Day 2 (“Legitimation”) contains presentations on the legitimacy and legitimation (including elite legitimation and delegitimation) of international organizations; legal interpretation as legitimation strategy; the evolving investment treaty arbitrator; and the legitimation strategies of international courts from a political science and philosophical perspective.
