On 6 and 7 September 2019, Dr Filippo Fontanelli presented a report to the 6th session of the Committee on the procedure of international courts and tribunals of the International Law Association (ILA), for which he serves as co-rapporteur.

The meeting was hosted at the Max Planck Institute for Procedural Law in Luxembourg. The committee, which was established in 2016, aims to propose a package of reforms for the procedural rules of international courts and tribunals, tailored to the individual circumstances of each jurisdiction. The committee has presented an interim report relating to the procedural rules of the International Court of Justice and the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea at the 2018 ILA Conference in Sydney, and is working on the procedure of inter-state arbitration in preparation for the 2020 ILA Conference in Kyoto, where it will present its final report.
