As the calls for the development of new and more appropriate methods for dispute settlement in international law increased during the 1990s, the PCA undertook a structural reform and is today a vital forum for dispute settlement, with scores of arbitrations currently pending under its auspices. This book – the most comprehensive study of the institution to date, covering its history, its present status, and its future prospects – proves the PCA’s contemporary relevance within the international dispute settlement framework. Among aspects of the PCA’s work covered are the following:
- how public international arbitration functions in comparison to other means available for dispute settlement in international law;
- the PCA’s historical contributions to the current dispute settlement framework;
- arbitrations between a state and a non-state actor that are in whole or in part governed by public international law;
- the fields in which public international arbitration plays a revived role;
- the PCA’s present-day institutional framework and its current activities;
- the prospects for public international arbitration and the PCA in the dispute settlement framework of the twenty-first century; and
- proposals to increase the PCA’s activities in future and to sustain and enhance the institution’s ongoing revitalization.
