International Judicial Review: When Should International Courts Intervene?
The purpose of the panel is to comment on my new monograph: Shai Dothan, International Judicial Review: When Should International Courts Intervene? (CUP, 2020): “This book is motivated by a question: When should international courts intervene in domestic affairs? To answer this question thoroughly, it is broken down to a series of separate inquiries: When is intervention legitimate? When can international courts identify good legal solutions? When will intervention initiate useful processes? When will it lead to good outcomes? These inquiries are answered based on reviewing judgments of international courts, strategic analysis, and empirical findings. The book outlines under which conditions intervention by international courts is recommended and evaluates the implications international courts have for society.“ The commentators will use their diverse skills of doctrinal and empirical analysis to criticize my book and recommend avenues for further research on the topic.
