International Dispute Resolution a definition

Boleslaw Adam Boczeck in his book “Historical Dictionary of International Tribunals” shares  a great definition of what international adjudication is, he understands that international adjudication or international dispute settlement must be understood as the:

“settlement of international disputes by international tribunals, implies the existence of a standing court of general or specialized jurisdiction, established pursuant to a multilateral, global or regional, treaty, in which independent and impartial judges render legally binding decisions on the basis of international law according to previously set rules and procedures, usually spelled out in the court’s statute, which guarantee the parties’ right to submit their views on the basis of full equality.”

Concise and to the point, like it.
