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 also aims to identify best practices and models to establish, improve or abolish ICs.
In a new book on ‘Identity and Diversity on the International Bench’, Freya Baetens investigates the impact of the overrepresentation of judges from certain backgrounds on the legitimacy of international courts and tribunals.
