Law of International Organizations 2022

Prof. Mirko Sossai

The purpose of the course is to provide an introduction to the principles and norms of international law applicable to the inter-governmental organisations (IGOs). It discusses the essential topics of the law of international organisations, including powers, privileges and immunities, as well as membership rules, institutional structures, and accountability. There is a focus on the United Nations system, as the paradigmatic IGO, including the activities of the specialised agencies based in Rome. Special emphasis is placed on the interaction between universalism and regionalism. IGOs have developed into a pervasive phenomenon: a fundamental objective of the course is to develop a critical understanding of their impact vis-à-vis the current global challenges (economic and financial crises, migration, armed conflicts, disarmament, natural disasters, epidemics).
At the end of this course, students should be proficient in the following subject areas and skills:
• being familiar with the historical development and the theoretical approaches related to international organisations law
• understanding the concept of international organisation, as well as those of the legal personality and legal capacities, under international and national law.
• having knowledge of the global and regional systems
• carrying out proper analysis on selected issues
• performing legal research and writing in English in the area of international organisations law
