A comprehensive and systematic overview of the law of international organizations for students.
International institutions are powerful players on the world stage, and every student of international law requires a clear understanding of the forces that shape them. For example, with increasing global influence comes the need for internal control and accountability. This thought-provoking overview considers these and other forces that govern international institutions such as the UN, EU and WTO, and the complex relationship that exists between international organizations and their member states. Covering recent scholarly developments, such as the rise of constitutionalism and global administrative law, and analysing the impact of important cases, such as the ICJ's Genocide case (2007) and the Behrami judgment of the European Court of Human Rights (2007), its clarity of explanation and analytical approach allow students to understand and think critically about a complex subject.
International organizations are unusual creations: generated by and for their member states, they must also often compete with member states. This complicated relationship leads to some uncertainty in the law, and the legal argument of an organization may often be counterpointed by an equally valid argument from a member state. Aware of this relationship in his comprehensive analysis of international institutional law, Jan Klabbers re-appraises the status of international organizations in this text for advanced law and international relations students.
