Details

A special lecture given by PD Dr. Heinz-Gerhard Justenhoven; director, Institute for Theology and Peace, Research Institution of the Catholic Church Hamburg, Germany

While the 19th century witnessed states claiming the right to wage war, the turn of the 20th century appeared to be the beginning of a new era for international jurisdiction.  For the first time in history, states agreed to solve conflicts not by waging war but in seeking a peaceful solution on the basis of law.  The establishment of a Court of Arbitration by the Hague Peace Conference in 1899, being the first step toward an International Jurisdiction, was a watershed event indicating an intent to overcome war. Yet states are currently wavering in their commitment to “international jurisdiction” that developed throughout the 20th century. In his lecture, “International Arbitration:  A Watershed to Overcome War,”  Justenhoven, will discuss the advancement of international arbitration as an effective tool to support international jurisdiction. Will the US become a forerunner in international jurisdiction during the 21st century, as it used to be in the 20th century?
