Assessing the Effectiveness of International Courts

This chapter examines the effectiveness of the European Court of Human Rights. It discusses the goals of the Court, identifies the factors that may influence judicial outcomes, and assesses the goal-attaining implications of these outcomes. It suggests that the Court has made at least some progress towards achieving its latter-day intermediate goals, and that it may have been effective in the sense of improving primary norm-compliance and contributing to the achievement of the broader goals of the Council of Europe. Evidence regarding the legitimization of associated norms and institutions and the peaceful settlement of disputes is somewhat more tenuous, but this does not mean that the Court has necessarily been ineffective regarding these goals either.

Keywords:   international courts, judicial outcomes, international adjudication, goal attainment
