by:Mary L. Volcansek
"A unique effort to pull together and analyze disparate supranational judicial and quasi-judicial institutions that have evolved in the aftermath of World War II. . . .

"A unique effort to pull together and analyze disparate supranational judicial and quasi-judicial institutions that have evolved in the aftermath of World War II. . . . The discussion of supranational judicial activities in regard to terrorism and sex discrimination in their relation to human rights is particularly important."—Walter O. Weyrauch, University of Florida, College of LawIn this first book to examine the four so-called supranational courts, authors compare the legitimacy, effectiveness, and political impact of the courts of the European Union, European Council on Human Rights, Organization of American States, and World Trade Organization. Though the ranges of jurisdiction, political clout, and potential for influence of these courts are varied, the authors argue that comparisons are instructive because each of the newer supranational judicial bodies was consciously patterned on its predecessors. Ultimately, as these contributors demonstrate, the construction of courts to apply and resolve "law above nations" may well be the trend for future international conflict resolution.CONTENTS1.
