This chapter considers some of the implications of different forms of private authority for the dichotomy between national and international law. Section 2 considers the contemporary significance of the phenomenon of private authority to an understanding of the relationship between international and national law. Section 3 seeks to identify contemporary forms of private authority and possible bases of distinction between public and private authority. Section 4 explores some of the ways international and national law interact in addressing the accountability of private authorities. It is argued that the relationship between national and international law may be seen as chaotic, lacking order and precision, and therefore as requiring some legal categorization in order to recapture certainty. Alternatively it may be seen as accommodating new actors and opening new spaces for diverse forms of, and arenas for, regulation.
