Lancaster House had also been the scene of at least one important international arbitration, the Palena arbitration (between Argentina and Chile). Th e present Conference, on ‘International Courts and Tribunals – Th e Challenges Ahead’, was organised under the Swedish Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, in conjunction with the 36th meeting of the Council of Europe’s Committee of Legal Advisers on Public International Law (CAHDI). 1 Th e CAHDI brings together, twice a year, the Legal Advisers of the 47 member States of the Council of Europe and a signiﬁ cant number of observer States and organizations.
