International organizations play an increasingly wide-ranging and consequential role in creating, interpreting, and securing compliance with international obligations. This course will address the legal issues arising from the creation and operation of international organizations, as well as the concerns and challenges that the actions of such organizations present, both on the international plane and in national courts. Topics covered will include the United Nations Security Council's role in sanctions and peacekeeping, the dispute settlement procedures at the World Trade Organization, and "technocratic" regulation by the International Civil Aviation Organization. This course complements and does not overlap with courses and seminars such as International Human Rights and International Trade.
