The expansion of international law and the accompanying 'proliferation' of international courts and tribunals raises questions on the application of coordinating principles between judicial institutions. This seminar will address the application and systemic relevance of jurisdictional and admissibility devices - such as res judicata, lis pendens and forum non-convenience - and principles of subsidiarity as means for the coordination of the 'global judicial system'.
