International Law in Domestic Courts [map]

This year marks the tenth anniversary of International Law in Domestic Courts (ILDC). Created to be an innovative and valuable resource for research on the interpretation and application of international law, it shows how international law matters in practice. The database contains court decisions from nearly 100 countries which deal with an aspect of international law.

This map highlights the number of ILDC cases per country and pulls out a number of particularly interesting ones. Hover over the blue markers to see the case tallies, click on the yellow markers to display the number of cases within geographical regions, and click on the red markers to find out more about how courts have understood and applied international law on a number of important issues.
