The editors, Christian Tomuschat and Marcelo Kohen, will present the recently published study and discuss with invited panelists the topic of conciliation as a flexible method to settle international disputes.
The publication assembles the papers initially presented at a colloquium held in October 2018 in Geneva, which explored conciliation in a wider context. Conciliation is examined in selected fields of activity of the international community and encompasses in its scope of research also experiences outside Europe by reaching out to geographical areas in Africa and Asia. The study takes stock of the successful revival of conciliation by looking closer to the case of Timor Leste v. Australia. The practices of inter-state disputes within human rights treaty bodies are highlighted.
The publication also portrays the potential of the OSCE Court of Conciliation and Arbitration which still remains to be fully activated.
