In this book, Dr Luping Zhang investigates dispute resolution mechanisms in international civil aviation with a primary focus on the functions of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Council. The ICAO was created as a result of the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention) laying the foundations for these dispute resolution mechanisms in international civil aviation, although it neglected to cover economic regulations. Over the
years there has been a proliferation of bilateral Air Services Agreements (ASA)s and multilateral treaties. With the advancement of aviation technology, The Resolution of Inter-State Disputes in Civil Aviation considers whether dispute resolution mechanisms should be modernised, and if so, what form
this modernisation might take.
It explores this through five chapters: the first chapter defines the scope of the research and introduces the methodology. The second chapter traces the evolution of dispute resolution clauses under both multilateral air law treaties and bilateral ASAs, with the most up-to-date data. The third chapter analyses how disputes brought forward in relation to the treaties in Chapter II are resolved in practice. The fourth chapter builds on empirical evidence to critically assesses the political and
legal implications of settling international aviation disputes. The final chapter proposes a model for reform based on this cumulative research, introducing a proposal for amending rules and procedures in the ICAO, as well as for the establishment of a new arbitral institution.
