This book is a study of the rules of procedure of international inter-governmental conferences. It will be invaluable to any representative attending an international conference or an assembly of an international organisation. It provides, for the first time, a practical manual with examples and precedents of how conferences apply rules of procedure. For the academic the book is of particular interest as it examines whether a new branch of customary international law has developed, namely that of procedure at international conferences.
