In the recent past, concerns have been voiced with regard to the influence of non-state actors, in particular non-governmental organizations (NGOs), on the international decision-making process. Some even feared that it may threaten the interstate system. This chapter takes up this concern and investigates whether such fear is justified. It considers the capacity of NGOs to conclude treaties, participate in treaty making, bring international claims, and incur liability under international law, and concludes that such fear is unfounded.
