This chapter presents Theodor Meron's speech honoring his very close friend, and one of the greatest international jurists of our time, Judge Thomas Buergenthal. Through his contributions as a scholar and a judge, Tom Buergenthal has played a critical role at the juncture of the two most important international law developments of the last half a century. The first is the human rights revolution, where he has attained a unique status. The second is the establishment and growth of international courts and tribunals and their role in the normative development of international law.

Keywords:   Judge Thomas Buergenthal, international law, human rights, international courts, international tribunals
