This book undertakes a specialised analysis of a topic that is highly significant both theoretically and practically. At the theoretical level, it discusses questions that have remained insufficiently answered in the fields of international human rights and institutional law. Notably, it clarifies how international human rights law conditions member states' governance role within international financial institutions and how this role is to be accommodated in the regime of international responsibility. Furthermore, the book's thorough discussion of member states' human rights due diligence duties offers a practical contribution to the understanding of what tools may be used by states to secure their human rights obligations when participating in international financial institutions. Its practical significance also relates to the examination of the various elements that must be demonstrated by an individual wishing to invoke member State responsibility for alleged human rights violations in the context of international financial institution operations.

  • Defines the border between international organisations and their member states and provides a theoretical background to help understand member state responsibility
  • Clarifies how international human rights law conditions member states' governance role within international financial institutions
  • Introduces a new perspective and explains the application of attribution rules in the context of member state participation in the representative bodies of international (financial) institutions
  • Analyses the establishment of member state responsibility for failure to act with due diligence as governors of international financial institutions
