Preview

This chapter focuses on the processes by which states grant powers on international organizations. It explains that the main way of conferring powers on international organizations is by concluding treaties that provide for such conferrals. It considers two main treaty mechanisms by which one or more States can confer powers on international organizations: by using a constituent treaty or on a more ad hoc basis via a treaty that is separate from the constituent treaty.

Keywords: international organizations; treaty mechanisms; constituent treaty; ad hoc basis
