Abstract: From a contemporary perspective, the Arbitral Tribunal for Upper Silesia appears remarkably well developed as a type of international jurisdiction, regarding both its substantive personal and material jurisdiction and the mechanisms and procedure for its enforcement. For example, the Arbitral Tribunal had the competence to determine questions of nationality in claims brought by individuals, which even today the Court of Justice of the European Union, often considered the most developed international court, does not have.
