Tobias Lock

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the book and the topic of the ECJ and International Courts by providing a working definition of ‘international courts’ and clarifying the basic theoretical assumptions on which this book is based, while providing basic definitions. It then contextualizes the discussion by providing the historical background to the so-called proliferation of international courts and by assessing the potential danger of this development for the coherence of international law.

Keywords:   international court definition, constitutional pluralism, proliferation of international courts, fragmentation, international law, historical development, international adjudication
