Regional Dispute Settlement

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the choices regional systems have made in designing dispute settlement systems. There are many potential options including choosing arbitration or mediation mechanisms, or creating regional courts. These different choices shape the extent to which dispute settlement becomes legalized and judicialized. The chapter discusses the state of theory and of the empirical analysis of dispute settlement systems associated with regionalism. We have a fairly good sense of the choices that governments have made, how these choices have changed significantly over time, and how the choice for a court may judicialize regional politics. But much work needs to be done so as to better understand the forces shaping these choices. The chapter summarizes the state of the art, identifying many fruitful areas for further investigation.
