FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS BEFORE THE COURTS
AbstractThis article seeks to reveal the inadequacies of Canadian legal doctrines dealing with foreign governments as litigants before Canadian courts. After reviewing the traditional principles applied to concepts such as recognition and immunity, it proceeds to illustrate the breakdown of judicial reliance on those principles and the consequent inadequacy of current ones, as a result of changing international relationships. Finally, it concludes by analyzing problems raised in the context of executive certificates, unrecognized regimes and recognized states and governments.
