Some principles of international law.

UNIDROIT (International Institute for the Unification of Private Law) is currently drawing up general principles and rules of transnational civil procedure, which may cover modes of referral. The final document produced by this organisation will not be legally binding.

Referral of cases to the European Court of Human Rights

The European Court of Human Rights, which has the power to examine cases alleging the violation of human rights with reference to the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights, has its own rules on the referral of cases.

You can obtain further information by visiting the Court's website.
