The Politics of Precedent in International Law

KRZYSZTOF J. PELC, McGill University.

Although formal binding precedent does not exist in international law, countries nonetheless expend considerable resources to shape legal precedent. In the international trade regime, some disputes are initiated to gain market access in response to domestic interests, while others are filed primarily to build favorable precedent for future cases of greater commercial value. Using a social network analysis of judicial citations, this talk will discuss evidence for the existence of “test cases” in international trade law.
