International Institutional Law / Henry G. Schermers; Niels M. BlokkerThis sixth, revised edition of International Institutional Law covers the most recent developments in the field. Although public international organizations such as the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the African Union, ASEAN, the European Union, Mercosur, NATO and OPEC have broadly divergent objectives, powers, fields of activity and numbers of member states, they also share a wide variety of institutional characteristics. Rather than being a handbook for specific organizations, the book offers a comparative analysis of the institutional law of international organizations. It includes chapters on the rules and practices concerning membership, institutional structure, decision-making, financing, legal order, supervision and sanctions, legal status and external relations. The book's theoretical framework and extensive use of case-studies is designed to appeal to both academics and practitioners.

Procedure at International Conferences / Robbie SabelThis new edition is a comprehensive manual of the rules of procedure for the conduct of business at the UN General Assembly, at international conferences and at assemblies of inter-governmental organisations such as the IAEA, ICAO, ILO, IMO and WHO. It examines the legal basis of these rules, the history of their development and the attempts at their codification. At the heart of the book is an examination of the practical applications of rules of procedure. Sabel also considers whether certain procedural rules and applications have become so well established that they have now attained the status of customary international law. The book is of interest to those involved in international law, international relations and international organisations. It also serves as a practical manual for delegates to the UN General Assembly and to international conferences.
