This course examines the international law relative to international organisations and looser institutional arrangements, such as those without a distinct legal personality and sui generis entities such as the ICRC. Traditional topics such as admission, decision-making and financing are considered, as well as various normative and operational activities. The complexification of the international institutional framework and UN attempts at reform are also studied. This course deals only incidentally with the maintenance of international peace and security.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Describe and evaluate the international law applicable to selected international organisations and non-governmental organisations;
- Describe and evaluate the interaction between various institutions and their role within the broader international legal system including its institutional framework;
- Critically assess, reflect on and evaluate areas of evolving or contentious international law pertaining to international institutions; and
- Plan and execute complex legal research with independence in order to produce original scholarship.
- A quiz (40) [LO 1,2,3,4]
