The Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice, in cooperation with the OSCE Court of Conciliation and Arbitration and the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, invites you to the symposium
The 1992 Stockholm Convention in a Europe in Crisis
In 1992, the participating states in the Organization for Security and Co-operation (OSCE), adopted the Stockholm Convention, which established the OSCE Court of Conciliation and Arbitration. The OSCE, and its predecessor the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe, has played a major role both during the last decades of the Cold War and in the post-Cold War order in Europe after the fall of the wall. The purpose of the creation of the Court was to facilitate the resolution of the many disputes that existed (and exist) in Europe, and to prevent them from escalating into conflicts. The Court has a flexible set-up, including the conciliation mechanism, which gives the parties considerable control of both the procedure and the outcome of a dispute settlement process.
Participants: Emmanuel Decaux, President of the OSCE Court of Conciliation and Arbitration; Mats Melin, former President of the Supreme Administrative Court of Sweden; Hans Corell, Ambassador (ret.), former Under-Secretary General for Legal Affairs and Legal Counsel of the United Nations; Vanda Lamm, Professor emeritus of International Law, Széchenyi István University, Győr, Vice-President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences; Vasilka Sancin, Professor of International Law, Faculty of Law, University of Ljubljana; Laurence Boisson de Chazournes, Professor of International Law, Director of the Center for International Dispute Settlement, University of Geneva; Stelios Perrakis, Professor emeritus, International and European Institutions, Panteion University, former Ambassador – Permanent Representative of Greece to the Council of Europe; Inga Reine, Judge at the General Court of the Court of Justice of the European Union; Anne Ramberg, former Secretary-General of the Swedish Bar Association; Christian Strohal, Ambassador (ret.), former Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights; Christian Tomuschat, Professor emeritus, Faculty of Law, Humboldt University, Berlin, Former President of the OSCE Court; Pål Wrange, Director, Stockholm Centre for International Law and Justice.
