Max Planck Encyclopedia of International Procedural Law
Launching on 5 September 2019, this new module will sit alongside the existing Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law (MPEPIL) as part of the relaunched Max Planck Encyclopedias of International Law (MPIL).
The Max Planck Encyclopedia of International Procedural Law (MPEiPro) will map and analyze the systems and processes through which international law is made and adjudicated in practice. Each article is commissioned by General Editor Professor Hélène Ruiz Fabri and a team of experts at the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law, providing cutting-edge and rigorously peer-reviewed research on areas of international law that are often under-explored. MPEiPro will take a broad view of international procedure, examining it from three different angles: technical points of procedure within specific institutions or across similar organizations; comparative accounts of families of institutions within specific subject areas or with similar functions; and theoretical, interdisciplinary entries.
The scope of the Encyclopedia will mirror the broad understanding of procedure underlying it, encompassing decision-making by international organs in general, including political and administrative bodies. At launch, the Encyclopedia will cover dispute settlement and adjudication. Coverage of non-adjudicatory modes of dispute settlement such as negotiation, mediation, and conciliation, as well as international political and administrative procedures will be added over time. The Encyclopedia will eventually contain over 1000 entries.
