Ronen & Naggan: Third Parties in International Adjudication

Yael Ronen (Sha'arei Mishpat College) & Yael Naggan (Hebrew Univ. of Jerusalem - Law) have posted Third Parties in International Adjudication (in The Oxford Handbook of International Adjudication, Cesare Romano, Karen Alter & Yuval Shany eds., forthcoming). Here's the abstract:
This chapter examines third party participation in contentious cases in international courts and tribunals. Section II discusses third party participation serving a personal interest in the outcome of the case or in the law that emerges from the case. Section III examines a discrete category of interveners, namely victims of human rights violations and international crimes in international criminal or other proceedings. Section IV concerns third party participation in pursuit of a public interest, commonly referred to as amicus curiae participation.
