Summary In the context of today's ever-increasing globalization the traditional role of international organizations has changed in recent years from that of facilitator of the activities of their members, to that of director of their own activities. This collection brings together the best published work by leading authorities in the field on issues that are affected by this change of role, such as governance, control, accountability and the privileges of international organizations
