NGOs in international law: Reconsidering personality and participation (again)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter contains a transdiciplinary discussion of the role and status of NGOS in international law. That role and status is contested on the basis of different disciplinary doctrines and theories. The chapter argues that a doctrinal separation between personality and participation is outdated and cannot explain the current activism of NGOS in the field of international law.
