PluriCourts studies the legitimacy of international courts and tribunals (ICs) from legal, political science and philosophical perspectives.
The number of ICs grows, as does concern about their legitimacy. Research at PluriCourts concerns the origins of ICs, how they function, and their effects. PluriCourts draws on these findings to assess the ICs by principles of legitimacy, and develops plausible, sustainable models for each IC and for their interaction.
PluriCourts' research plan describes the scope and focus of the work at the Centre.
