The lectures entitled 'International Dispute Resolution, with specific attention to China' first consider the concept of an international dispute and the development of the obligation on states to settle their disputes peacefully. They then examine the historical evolution and contemporary understandings of the mechanisms enumerated in United Nations Charter, Article 33 for the management and attempted resolution of such disputes which are currently available to states and other participants in the international arena: negotiation, inquiry, mediation, conciliation, mediation, arbitration and adjudication. Each of the processes is discussed in the historical, political and legal contexts of various international disputes, including the detention of the American hostages in Tehran, various aspects of the possession of nuclear weapons and the territorial dispute over Abyei. The lectures consider the respective advantages and disadvantages of these various mechanisms, the interplay between them, their effectiveness and the legal and policy issues that influence choices as to different approaches to resolution of international disputes.
