Foreign State Immunity and Denial of Justice: Jurisdictional Rules, Rights and Conflict

The proposed thesis submits that the scope of foreign States' right to jurisdictional immunities, rightly condensed into the maxim par in parem non habet imperium, is determined by a number of international rules on the allocation of jurisdiction among States. It thus submits that the concept of denial of justice, sanctioned in the practice of States, gives rise to an internationally recognized basis of jurisdiction capable of displacing the application of jurisdictional immunities.
