Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Principles of the Institutional Law of International Organizations is still one of the best general works available on organizations.' Netherlands International Law Review

'… analytical and explanatory, and the author reasons and discusses issues in depth. … answers hypothetical questions where the development in legislation or legal practice has not yet become firm enough to be able to offer an answer to the numerous questions that still remain open in the field of international institutional law. … Amerasinghe commendably dares to take the extra step from the law in force to the law in the making and offers suggestions for solutions, which suggestions may well contribute to the development of the law.' International Organizations Law Review

'… when the first edition of C. F. Amerasinghe's book on international organizations was published there was a gap in the literature on the topic. There was a need for an up-to-date book that could serve as a manageable guide to institutional law … The book … met the need so effectively that its structuring of institutional law is still today of some impact. … the merits of the book have been located in its general characterization of institutional law, in the identification of both possibilities and limits to the very idea of a law of organizations, and in pinpointing the relationship of institutional law to other areas of international law. … The first question that arises is why a revision is necessary. Amerasinghe answers this question himself. The ever increasing attention paid to judicial organs of organizations required including them into the book.' Netherlands International Law Review
