(p.1) Introduction
International Organizations and their Exercise of Sovereign Powers


Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a brief description of the purpose of the book, which is to provide a conceptual and legal analysis of the exercise by international organizations of sovereign powers. It contends that the broad range of measures being taken by international organizations in the exercise of these powers has prompted domestic political and judicial actors and commentators to question the constitutionality and propriety of conferring these broad powers on organizations. There is, however, a considerable lack of clarity in discussion of these issues. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords:   constitutionality, sovereign powers, international organizations
