About the Authors
  • This book presents a radical, empirical investigation of how national courts "react" to disputes involving international organizations, analyzing in particular whether such organizations should be immune to national jurisdictions. Under the headings "domestic legal personality" and "immunity" of international organizations, some of the issues covered have already been treated in international legal scholarship, mostly in the form of short articles or case notes. This study, however, provides a thorough comparative analysis and the largest compilation of relevant decisions on the subject, making it indispensable for practitioners as well as academics in the field.

    • Broad, comparative approach of a complicated subject
    • Easy access to problem areas for the practitioner whose client's business faces problems of the interaction of IOs and national law
    • Thorough treatment of fundamental problems of the law of international organizations

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...comprehensively researched and exhaustively footnoted, with the author supporting his proposals with references to a tremendous body of case law and legal literature. The work is a welcome entry in the rapicly expanding scholarship regarding international organizations, and this book should be a useful addition to any academic law library wupporting research in international law." International Journal of Legal Information

    "...impressive not only in its approach but also in its scope...Reinisch provides an impressively comprehensive examination of a rather neglected aspect of public international law." The Law and Politics Book Review, Vol. 11

    "The analysis and breadth of case law cited, and the clear and compelling conceptual framework Reinisch has fashioned, will ensure that his book will become and long remain essential reading for all concerned with international organizations in the world today." American Journal of International Law
