UPDATE: We've started receiving some comments from readers. Professor Ken Gallant, for example, wrote: "To the ICTY and ICTR add the MICT (the [Completion] Mechanism for the International Criminal Tribunals). All of the Tribunals that you have listed are worth reporting on. I would add the WTO Dispute Resolution Mechanism and the NAFTA Dispute Resolution Mechanism."

To the ICTY and ICTR add the MICT (the [Completion] Mechanism for the International Criminal Tribunals).
All of the Tribunals that you have listed are worth reporting on.
I would add the WTO Dispute Resolution Mechanism and the NAFTA Dispute Resolution Mechanism.

The list raises an interesting question regarding the distinction between courts and other types of tribunals that use processes more akin to arbitration to resolve international disputes. It might be useful to create sub-categories of specialized courts and tribunals focused on trade, human rights or international criminal law, for example.
