Conferrals by States of Powers on International Organizations: a Typology

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter provides a typology of the various types of conferrals by States of powers on international organizations: cases of agency relationships, delegations of powers, and transfers of powers. It explains that the classification of these different types of conferrals is based on a measurement of the degree to which States have given away their powers to international organizations. First is the blunt instrument of revocability, second is the control by States over the organization, and third is an exclusive or concurrent competence to exercise conferred powers.

Keywords: typology; power conferral; international organizations; agency relationships; delegations of powers; transfers of powers; revocability
