A century ago, a primary reason for international courts and tribunals was the avoidance of war. Today the discussion of ‘function’ has been renewed and is multifaceted. The Lecture examined this question distinguishing between the functions that courts and tribunals play in international relations and the tasks that the judges are asked to undertake, as well as distinguishing between such functions and the motivations that lie behind the creation of international courts and tribunals. Our speaker then proceeded to examine the possible implications of these distinctions for international relations and academic study.y.

Professor David D. Caron is Member of the Iran - United States Claims Tribunal, The Hague and Professor of International Law, at the Dickson Poon School of Law, King's College London.
