Summary:

As part of the Geneva Peace Week programme and on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the United Nations, this panel will examine the evolution of the role of international organizations for the maintenance of peace and security. The creation of the UN represented a sort of 'revolution' in international relations due to its complex institutional structure, its broad mandate and the legal relevance of its acts. The celebration of the organization’s anniversary will give a valuable opportunity to discuss current trends in international institutional law. This debate will also shed some light on the deficiencies and limits of this branch of international law, specifically with reference to the emerging question of the accountability of international organizations in the area of peace and security.

The event includes a presentation of “Evolutions in the Law of International Organizations” edited by Roberto Virzo and Ivan Ingravallo, General introduction by Niels Blokker (Brill/Nijhoff 2015).
