This paper explores the interactions between national and international courts by adopting a functional analysis. One cannot really speak about ‘the’ relationship between national and international courts. Rather, there is a multitude of legal relationships that, both in their empirical and normative dimensions, are best studied by distinguishing between the different functions that national and international courts fulfill vis-à-vis each other.
