Centre for International Law

International Dispute Resolution

The Centre for International Law (CIL) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) has recently embarked on a new research programme in International Dispute Resolution (IDR) in which it will undertake research in the various methods of resolving disputes between States, disputes between States and private companies, and disputes between States and international organisations, with a regional focus. The programme will examine all forms of international dispute resolution including negotiation, fact-finding, conciliation, mediation, arbitration and adjudication. Because of the wide ranging nature of IDR, the programme overlaps, and supports, the Centre’s other focus areas including oceans law and policy, ASEAN law and policy and trade and investment law and policy.
