Today, the reach and scope of public international law has expanded far beyond the role it played in State and commercial affairs even a few decades ago. The number of State-to-State disputes referred to binding dispute resolution either by the International Court of Justice or by arbitral tribunals has rocketed in recent years.
Public international law now forms a critical element in many international commercial transactions and often plays a leading role in settling related disputes. The application of public international law has also increased through the explosion in the number of bilateral investment treaties and the birth of multilateral treaty-based regimes around the world.
