The Responsibilities and Immunities of International Organizations
One of the most contentious issues relating to international organizations is their privileges and immunities. Who is responsible for the introduction of a deadly and highly contagious disease by peacekeepers or NGO workers? How can victims of sexual assault by staff of international organizations seek redress and see the perpetrator held to account? Who is ultimately responsible for war crimes committed in an area that was supposedly under the control of an international organization? These materials and their accompanying analysis show both how international organizations themselves have dealt with these questions and how courts have decided in cases involving immunity.
