Current research

Measuring the Quality of International Judiciary

This project seeks to critically assess the current regime of international judiciary to determine their quality. It assesses elements such as the independence of the international courts and tribunals, their accountability, transparency and their checks and balance mechanisms. It also seeks to examine the interconnections between these elements and how the presence or absence of one affects the other.

The project examines various developed international courts but focuses specifically on the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice. The research aim is to proffer recommendations to the ECCJ to enhance the development of the courts structure and quality.
