During the period 1999–2009, the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in The Hague, an intergovernmental organisation dedicated to international dispute settlement, saw a period of unprecedented growth, with fourteen arbitrations dealing with matters of international significance.

Thirty public awards were rendered during that period, concerning subjects such as the laws of armed conflict, land and maritime boundary delimitation, the laws of international organisations, the interpretation of treaties, and the protection of investments.

This volume contains detailed, concise summaries of those awards, together with a critical analysis of the PCA’s contribution to international law and international dispute resolution. With each summary including an overview of key details, reference lists to the subject matters addressed, and citations to academic commentaries, this is an invaluable research tool for academics and practitioners, and for anyone wishing to gain an insight into the organisation, its work, and its field of activity.

  • Summaries include a list of legal subject matters, enabling rapid appraisal of the relevance of the case for the reader’s research purposes and facilitating cross-referencing
  • Summaries include brief details of the procedural history, providing an overview of important issues and giving an insight into the types of issues that can arise and how they have been addressed
  • Each summary provides a detailed, concise account of the reasoning and findings of the arbitral tribunal or commission
