The author in this paper is presenting the new style of international courts. The new international judicial architecture that review administrative decisions validity, asses state compliance with international law, influence international and domestic politics, serving as a regulative role of creating guidelines and setting expectations and allowing private parties to seek remedies with international legal bodies. The authors theory is that international courts alter politics through alliance with compliance constituencies.
Under Article 38 of its Statute, the International Court of Justice can apply judicial
judgments only as a ‘‘subsidiary means for the determination of rules of law’’. Nevertheless, there are many reasons to believe that international courts and tribunals do play quite an essential role in the advanced development of international law.
Whereas once international law considerably postponed to states in the legislation and enforcement of legal duties, it now defines those duties more and more, and leaves less and less room for state liberty. Regulatory dominance over individuals, a common characteristic of government, is now within the concept of international law and international courts.

While private access to international enforcement entities tends to play out a positive role to cooperation by encouraging better compliance and further expansion of law, this is not a globally available and effective alternative. Not all international treaties include private access, and where they do, private actors sometimes lack the resources necessary to utilize these mechanisms. Unless procedures are backed up with resources, private actors often have limited ability to fulfill the function reserved for them in this form of enforcement. By raising the awareness of rights, rules, and complaint mechanisms, by funding training and research, and by offering moral support.

- Introduction: There are three frameworks or approaches in the examination of poverty: the neo-classical conservative, the liberal and the radical schools. In this paper, I argue that the radical school of thought best approaches poverty from a standpoint that allows for the liberation of minorities from hegemonic norms. First, I will examine the conservative school understanding of poverty and how they inadequately address the values and views of minorities that result in oppressive policies. Second, I will critique the liberal school and how that paradigm also ineffectively acknowledges the perspectives of minorities that also lead to policies that are unjust.... [tags: Economics ]
