Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the participation of third parties in contentious cases in international courts and tribunals. It first considers third party intervention serving personal interest which may be affected by the result of the particular case. It then focuses on a specific category of interveners, namely victims of international crimes and violations of international human rights law. The discussion then turns to third party intervention serving a public interest, often referred to as amicus curiae participation.

Keywords: third part intervention, international courts, personal interest, international crimes, crime victims, public interest, amicus curiae
