In August 2008, Professor Yuval Shany of the Hebrew University's International Law Forum received a 5 year Independent Research Grant from the European Research Council. The ERC operates from within the EC 7th Framework Program and allocates funding support towards innovative research projects which are expected to expand upon the established frontiers of their respective disciplines.
The Aims: Over the next 5 years, ‘the Effectiveness Project’ seeks to improve our understanding of the worlds’ International Courts, their current activities, and their future potential. By examining which factors influence the capacity of International Courts to achieve their stated goals, the project aims to identify, as far as is possible, under what circumstances international courts are particularly effective, and what "outcomes" and "impacts" we can realistically expect them to deliver.
Conference on International Judicial Function: An international conference co-sponsored by the Effectiveness Project and other academic institutions was held in Amsterdam on March 18-19, 2011. The conference brought together some of the world's most senior international judges and scholars to discuss the various functions of international courts. Press here for a program of the event.
