Rethinking the role of courts in civil dispute resolution

The aim of this project is to develop legal theory on the public policy-implementing role of national courts in the three forms of civil dispute resolution which can eventually provide private actors with access to state enforcement, namely civil litigation, arbitration and mediation.


The project will improve our understanding of the role of courts as gatekeepers of access to court and state enforcement for private actors, which is fundamentally important to understand the interplay between state legal orders and private ordering in the age of globalization. We expect that the project findings will also minimize legal uncertainty and improve the basis for legal development and policymaking in this field.
