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.

'This book contains all you ever wanted to know about international institutional law and was perhaps not afraid to ask about, but that you could not find clear, concise, updated and well thought through answers to. Now you have this book. In addition it is remarkably well written. The dry prose of international institutional law is given a witty twist ... Who ever thought international institutional law could be funny? ... I can immediately see the pedagogic value of the book as well; it brings up all the issues you want to teach in a course on the law of international organizations in a logical and comprehensible manner without simplifying unnecessarily.' Tidskrift utgiven av Juridiska Föreningen I Finland

Finnish Yearbook of International Law 2003
