Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the regulatory dimension of the legitimacy of NGO involvement in international organizations. The central questions addressed in the chapter are what the relevant rules on the involvement of NGOs in international organizations are and whether NGO involvement conforms to these rules. The chapter focuses on the regulatory legitimacy of NGO involvement in the policy deliberation and decision-making processes of international organizations, and in particular of the UN, UNCTAD, UNEP, the WHO, the ILO, the IBRD, the IMF and the WTO. The concept of 'regulatory legitimacy', as used in the chapter, refers to the degree to which the involvement of NGOs in international organizations conforms to legal rules. In addition to the rules defining the legal status of NGOs, the rules on the involvement of NGOs in international organizations also include rules on the accreditation of NGOs by these organizations.

Keywords: ILO; IMF; NGO accreditation; NGO legal status; regulatory legitimacy; UNCTAD; UNEP; WHO; World Bank; WTO
