In this podcast, Professor Sean Murphy and Alison Macdonald discuss bilateral claims commissions. The mass resolution of claims arising out of particular inter-state disputes differs in many respects from more familiar ad hoc arbitrations. Sean and Alison consider why particular conflicts, such as Iran/US, Eritrea/Ethiopia and Kuwait/Iraq, have led to such commissions being set up.
