This entry provides a detailed and systematic account of mixed courts of the colonial era, which were a form of domestic courts with international participation established between the first half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century in non-Western polities. Serving as an alternative to consular jurisdiction in countries where Western states were unwilling to accept the jurisdiction of ordinary local courts over their nationals or their nationals’ interests, these courts blended domestic and international features.

Using the example of the European Court of Justice (ECJ), this article addresses the lack of historical contextualization which is prevalent in most general accounts of EU law and EU institutions. It argues that this narrative is the result of a tradition established by the founders of the discipline. For these early ‘Euro-lawyers’, distinguishing the practice of European institutions from earlier international institutions had important political implications. This was especially true with regard to the ECJ. By providing a selective and partly decontextualized narrative of this court and describing it as largely unprecedented in international law, early Euro-lawyers were not only able to bolster the ‘supranational’ and ‘sui generis’ character of their nascent discipline. They were also able to avoid comparisons between the ECJ and prior international courts and tribunals whose similarly wide-ranging powers and integrated nature had been considered as politically problematic.

With the benefit of hindsight, presenting the Treaty of Versailles as an example of ‘peace through law’ might seem like a provocation. And yet, the extreme variety and innovativeness of international procedural and substantial ‘experiments’ attempted as a result of the Treaty of Versailles and the other Paris Peace Treaties of 1919–1920 remain striking even today. While many of these ‘experiments’ had a lasting impact on international law and dispute settlement after the Second World War, and considerably broadened the very idea of ‘peace through law’, they have often disappeared from collective memories. Relying on both legal and historical research, this book provides a global overview of how the Paris Peace Treaties impacted on dispute resolution in the interwar period, both substantially and procedurally. The book’s accounts of several all-but-forgotten international tribunals and their case law include references to archival records and photographic illustrations. [less ▲]

This entry provides a detailed account and assessment of the Upper Silesian Mixed Commission, a quasi-judicial body instituted from 1922 to 1937 between Germany and Poland in a region partitioned between the two states. The Mixed Commission for Upper Silesia offered the most sophisticated mechanism for the protection of minority rights during the Interwar Period. As a predecessor of the European Court of Human Rights, its legacy, especially its case-law on questions such as indirect discrimination, remains relevant today. [less ▲]

This paper (originally written in 2016) presents the evidence requirements applicable before 19th century anti-slave trade courts. It examines several emblematic cases showing that de jure considerations (such as the emancipated status of passengers, or even the fact that slavery did no longer exist in the country of destination) did not prevent judges from holding, based on a de facto standard of treatment, that acts of slave trading had been committed.
