This work analyzes the jurisdictional powers of international tribunals in certain areas of fundamental significance and importance. It clarifies how tribunals and consensual arrangements have approached problems and which general principles may have emerged. Special aspects of jurisdiction of some particular tribunals have been studied in greater detail. These are: the Permanent Court of International Justice and the International Court of Justice, the ICSID arbitration tribunals, the administrative tribunals covering disputes between international organizations and their employees, the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice. The choice of these tribunals has been based on the distinctive character of each one of them in the context of modern international legal relations.
This work will be of interest to practitioners involved in the current practice of these courts and tribunals as well as academics studying the more general principles.

From the Publisher
'[T]he monograph advances a quite original view on jus cogens in relation to the jurisdiction of international tribunals...[It is] a valuable, original, comprehensive, and timely addition to existing literature. It will be useful to those who are interested in this field, and is likely to retain its relevance for some time to come.'
British Year Book of International Law, 2003 Volume 74.
'His systematic analysis of the practice of the main international tribunals relating to jurisdiction offers [...] a comprehensive and therefore renewed understanding of a fundamental notion of international law.'
