Unity within Diversity, Fifth Revised Edition
For the e-version of the NEW 6th Edition of International Institutional Law, please go to: https://brill.com/view/title/36421
In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in the law of public international organizations. This fifth, revised edition of International Institutional Law covers the most recent developments in the field. Although public international organizations such as the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, ASEAN, the European Union and other organizations have broadly divergent objectives, powers, fields of activity and numbers of member states, they also share a wide variety of institutional problems.
Rather than being a handbook for specific organizations, the book offers a comparative analysis of the institutional law of international organizations. It includes comparative chapters on the rules and practices concerning membership, institutional structure, decision-making, financing, legal order, supervision and sanctions, legal status and external relations. The book’s theoretical framework and extensive use of case-studies is designed to appeal to both academics and practitioners.

The scope of powers of international institutions has always been surrounded by a sense of ambiguity. This has its source in the nature of the two main legal tools with which to construct powers; the doctrines of attributed/conferred powers and implied powers. This book illustrates the function of the two doctrines in a discourse on powers. Special attention is also paid to the move to a constitutional vocabulary as a way of transcending the dichotomy at the heart of diverging constructions of powers. Constitutionalization claims, the book argues, can be reproductions of different images of the proper extent of powers. The book is a reminder of the political nature of any construction of powers of international institutions.
Concern over the relationship between human rights, social justice and international trade competitiveness has led to the inclusion of the issue of the rights of workers in the agenda of leading international organizations. International labour issues once seen as a monopoly preoccupation of the ILO (International Labour Organization) have now become important issues in other international organizations, as well as within regional trading blocs. This original study examines the extent to which international labour issues have become issue of concern within the European Union, the ILO, the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development), and the WTO (World Trade Organization).
The internationally known authors of this book have been long-time observers of the work of international organizations on labour rights and globalisation and have been leaders in the effort to bring issue of social justice onto the international agenda.
Social Issues, Globalisation and International Institutions: Labour Rights and the EU, ILO, OECD and WTO is the culmination of a project of the Program for the Study of International Organization(s) (PSIO) at the Graduate Institute of Institute of International Studies, Geneva, Switzerland (HEI), supported by a grant from the Ford Foundation.

Author: Paul Szasz
In the realm of the law of international organizations and treaty law, few commentators have made a more significant contribution than Paul C. Szasz. In his years of distinguished service at the U.N., and in his subsequent career as a prominent consultant to international institutions, he has mastered a highly specialized body of knowledge that allows him to study the inner and outer workings of the international legislative, administrative, and judicial processes with unique and compelling authority. His incisive essays, always deeply informed with first-hand experience, have gone directly to the heart of the most vital international legal issues of our time.
This volume gathers twenty-one essays that will be of inestimable value to the entire community of public international lawyers. With penetrating insight Szasz exposes the institutional underpinnings affecting such international law matters as:


law-making in international organizations,
the obligation to arbitrate,
monitoring treaty compliance,
UN system "complexification,"
sanctions,
the advisory competence of the World Court,
the legal liability of diplomats,
peacekeeping intervention, and
the role of NGOs.
Specific facts and events-such as the U.S. action in the 1988 PLO mission controversy, developments in the safeguards regime of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Kosovo Conflict, the Dayton Accords, and the Namibian peace process-provide a firm topical basis for the author's analysis of policy, practice, and theory in this little-understood but crucially important area of international governance.
