The concluding chapter draws together the various main argumentative threads laid out in the preceding chapters and ultimately asks head on: In whose name, then, do international courts speak the law? The chapter finds that from the perspective of the book’s public law theory of international adjudication, international courts decide, even if they do not know it, in the name of the peoples and the citizens. This formula, which connects to both peoples and citizens, does not reflect conceptual uncertainty but stands for a plural understanding of democratic legitimation. In conclusion, the chapter flags remaining questions that still need to be answered and offers a number of suggestions for further research that can be carried out across the disciplines.
