Projects

My project analyses the practice of interstate arbitration in public international law as well as the peace movement and its aspirations for pacification by juridification in the context of 19th and early 20th century. The methodology to be employed is interdisciplinary: historical-hermeneutical questions are linked with juridical-normative questions. In addition, assumptions by political scientists with regard to conflict resolution in international relations will be scrutinised. Two major points are at issue: What are the historical-political conditions under which political actors choose to resort to conflict resolution by arbitration tribunals instead of bilateral negotiations or military force? What are the causes of the increased importance of interstate arbitration?
