This chapter examines the similarities and differences between the immunities of States and international organizations, as well as their interrelationship with diplomatic immunities. It also points out the pitfalls of analogies among the various immunities. The analogy between the immunities of States and international organizations might have proved promising when international organizations came into existence in the twentieth century, but it is now fraught with pitfalls. In an attempt to restrict the jurisdictional immunity of international organizations, it has been analogized to State immunity, but such an analogy is inapt even though the immunity of international organizations had roots in diplomatic and State immunities. Although the immunity of international organizations originated as “a general principle resting on the questionable analogy of diplomatic immunities; it has become a complex body of rules set forth in detail in conventions, agreements, statutes and regulations.”

Keywords:   diplomatic immunity, state immunity, international organization immunity, interrelationship, analogies
