- Diplomatic immunity — Immunity from jurisdiction — Responsibility of international organizations
International organizations like the United Nations (UN) require certain privileges and immunities from national jurisdictions for the effective performance of their tasks. These privileges and immunities are granted to preserve the independence of the UN from its member states and to secure the international character of the organization. This chapter discusses the sources of privileges and immunities; reasons for the conferral of privileges and immunities; privileges and immunities of the organization, representatives of member states, officials of the organization, and experts on mission; abuse, waiver, and settlement of disputes regarding privileges and immunities; privileges and immunities during peacekeeping operations; and immunities of international organizations and the jurisdiction of international criminal tribunals.
