How do international courts and tribunals created by and connected to a specific legal regime, in the fields of trade, investment, human rights, or the law of the sea, take into account rules and jurisprudence developed outside their own regime? And how do developments within specific regimes affect general international law? The three speakers, whose activity refers primarily to a specific courts or tribunal, will discuss how the courts within which they operate address arguments based on ‘extra-regime’ norms and jurisprudence.
