Opening Lecture - Interim measures: the critical impact they may have on international legal proceedings
Tuesday, 27 September 2022

The MIDS is delighted to welcome you to the lecture on "Interim measures: the critical impact they may have on International legal proceedings" with Isabelle Michou.

Interim measures raise similar issues despite the different dispute resolution processes. This Lecture will cover the range of objectives pursued by interim measures (preserve a party's rights, protect the integrity of the proceedings, prevent aggravation or extension of the dispute), compare the approaches taken by international tribunals, and discuss the practical impact that interim measures may have, if granted, on the outcome of the parties' dispute.
