  • About this book

The 7th Hague Joint Conference in 2005 considered the main challenges that international law faces concerning the reform of institutions that carry great authority, and reflect long-standing tradition and far-reaching effect. International Institutional Reform provides an overview of the main subjects that the conference panels dealt with, such as whether certain international organizations lend themselves to reform; the role of the Security Council; the European Union and institutional reform; and the inter-play between national, regional and international courts. The book presents a valuable overview of the wide range of topical subjects covered by leading scholars in the field. Further, the reader is challenged with innovative and insightful suggestions concerning reforms. The energy, enthusiasm and passion that were evident at the conference discussions are documented here, as well as demonstrating the creativity and innovation among international law scholars and practitioners.
