PluriCourts studies how International Courts (ICs) select, decide and justify cases. Which conditions affect states’ compliance with ICs’ decisions? Do ICs perpetrate domination by certain states, multinationals or investors over historically underprivileged groups including women, or the Global South? Do ICs– and should they - contribute to global justice? If so, should judges draw on such norms in their interpretations?
