Cross-fertilization in practice: a 'managerial' approach from the counsel table

Dr Kate Parlett's workshop in Washington DC addresses issues of competition and collaboration amongst international courts and tribunals. The workshop, which is organized by PluriCourts – Centre for the Study of Legitimate Roles of the Judiciary in the Global Order at the University of Oslo, will bring together judges of international courts, leading practitioners in international dispute settlement, and academics to discuss the potential for cross-fertilization in procedural and substantive issues, as a way to address concerns about fragmentation in the international legal system. Drawing upon recent literature and experience, Kate will address “Cross-fertilization in practice: a ‘managerial’ approach from the counsel table”, and will discuss the ways in which counsel (representing States and other actors in the international legal system) have contributed and can contribute in the future to cross-fertilization in practice, and the challenges to counsel making such contributions.
