Advanced Introduction to the Law of International Organizations, written by Jan Klabbers

Advanced Introduction to the Law of International Organizations, written by Jan Klabbers (Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, 2016).Jan Klabbers’ Advanced Introduction to the Law of International Organizations covers a lot of ground in scarcely more than a hundred pages. It offers a comprehensive and accessible account of how international organizations operate, how the international legal system does (and does not) regulate them, and how their member states control them (or fail to do so). Importantly, the picture that Klabbers presents isn’t static. He explains how international organizations have evolved over time—as have efforts to govern them. And he argues convincingly that the law and practice of international organizations must evolve still further to address mounting concerns about their lack of accountability, especially to individuals who are directly affected, and in some cases seriously harmed, by those organizations.The Advanced Introduction is perfectly targeted to students, practitioners, and scholars who are familiar with the basics of international law and who seek to better understand the power and promise of international organizations as well as the risks that they pose. Given the pervasiveness of international organizations and the manifold roles they play in the international legal system, international lawyers can hardly avoid becoming familiar with at least one or two such organizations.

Abstract

(Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, 2016).Jan Klabbers’ Advanced Introduction to the Law of International Organizations covers a lot of ground in scarcely more than a hundred pages. It offers a comprehensive and accessible account of how international organizations operate, how the international legal system does (and does not) regulate them, and how their member states control them (or fail to do so). Importantly, the picture that Klabbers presents isn’t static. He explains how international organizations have evolved over time—as have efforts to govern them. And he argues convincingly that the law and practice of international organizations must evolve still further to address mounting concerns about their lack of accountability, especially to individuals who are directly affected, and in some cases seriously harmed, by those organizations.The Advanced Introduction is perfectly targeted to students, practitioners, and scholars who are familiar with the basics of international law and who seek to better understand the power and promise of international organizations as well as the risks that they pose. Given the pervasiveness of international organizations and the manifold roles they play in the international legal system, international lawyers can hardly avoid becoming familiar with at least one or two such organizations.
