- International organizations — UN Charter
The Charter of the United Nations provides for two different means by which it is possible to become a member of the organization. Article 3 of the UN Charter relates to original members of the organization, while other members may be admitted under Article 4 of the UN Charter. The main distinction between original members and other members is that the organization is able to exercise control over whether the latter become members but had no control over the admission to membership of original members. This chapter discusses the admission to membership process; loss of membership and membership rights; readmission to membership; state succession and membership; problems of extinction and continuity; representation of members/credentials; and the position of observers.
