(p.67) 4 Jurisdictional Powers and Issues of Admissibility
Assessing the Effectiveness of International Courts

Yuval Shany

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the concepts of jurisdiction and admissibility. It explores the link between, on the one hand, the potential for goal attainment and, on the other hand, the scope of jurisdictional authority and powers to invoke grounds of admissibility with which international courts have been invested. The final section examines policy considerations employed by international courts when applying their jurisdictional powers and admissibility-related discretion. It argues that the engagement in case selection on either a categorical (jurisdiction) or a case-by-case basis is an important procedural feature of international adjudication, which may contribute to judicial effectiveness.
