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.

Professor Sean Murphy is a member of Matrix, Patricia Roberts Harris Research Professor of Law at George Washington University, and a member of the UN International Law Commission. Alison Macdonald is a member of Matrix and has an extensive civil, criminal and arbitration practice in both domestic and international courts and tribunals.
