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.

  • Presents the facts and discusses the forces that shape and influence the laws governing international institutions, encouraging students to think critically about the topic
  • Engages students by analysing recent scholarly developments and demonstrating the practical application of complex legal theories
  • Helps students understand the ambiguous relationship between an international organization and its member states, and how this shapes international institutional law
  • Clearly defines the subject-specific terms and acronyms which students initially find difficult
