PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES
Upon a request received from the Government of Japan to prepare a preliminary study for the Fifty-Seventh Annual Session held in 2018 in Tokyo, Japan, the topic of ‘Peaceful Settlement of Disputes’ was placed on the Agenda of AALCO.
In 2019, the Secretariat prepared a brief on the topic ‘Peaceful Settlement of Disputes’ for the Fifty-Eigth Annual Session held in Dar es Salaam, the United Republic of Tanzania. The brief outlined the importance of pacific settlement of disputes and its position in international law while highlighting the importance of ‘non-compliance measures’ as a suitable mechanism for the settlement of international environmental disputes.
At the Fifty-Ninth Annual Session, the Secretariat prepared a brief on the topic ‘Peaceful Settlement of Disputes’, but the topic was postponed for deliberation at subsequent sessions due to time constraints.
