International Administrative Review

International Administrative Review

(p.199) Chapter 6 International Administrative Review
The New Terrain of International Law

Karen J. Alter

Princeton University Press

This chapter examines thirteen international courts (ICs) with administrative review jurisdiction and explains how delegation of administrative review authority is associated with systems where international and/or domestic administrative actors apply international regulatory rules. Whereas international dispute settlement involves a broad range of issues, administrative review tends to be concerned with economic aspects of international agreements. Eleven ICs have jurisdiction to review administrative acts of supranational administrators; eight have jurisdiction to review national implementation of international administrative rules. All ICs with designated administrative review roles have compulsory jurisdiction associated with this role and allow private actors to initiate litigation so that the subjects of administrative decision making can pursue a legal remedy. Twelve ICs also allow national judges to refer to the IC cases where community rules are at issue.

Keywords:   administrative review, international courts, domestic administrative actors, dispute settlement, international agreements, supranational administrators, litigation
