ABOUT THE BOOK:
"This book covers the relationship between the jurisdictional immunities of States and international organizations, addressing their similarities and dissimilarities as well as their relationship with diplomatic immunity. It considers that the immunity of international organizations was historically conceived in terms of State immunity. The major aim of this book is to clarify the conceptual confusion that has often marred the understanding of the law of the different but interrelated jurisdictional immunities of both States and international organizations. To achieve this, the book focuses more on what the law is than on what it should be. The book concludes by making the case that the jurisdictional immunities of States and international organizations are not only sustainable but also necessary for international relations and cooperation."
