Chapter Summary

This section presents a note on authors that occur in this book titled Nijhoff Law Specials . Internationally operating Non-governmental organization (NGOs) are increasingly involved in international politics and policy-making. They have become powerful players in the international arena. In many respects, their involvement resembles activities and policies that, until recently, were typical of traditional national authorities, and, for that reason, were expected to be performed by those national authorities, or by international governmental authorities rather than by NGOs. Gradually, more and more people are affected by their activities. Notwithstanding the global extent of their impact, a somewhat more than rudimentary system of checks and balances of NGO involvement has hitherto not been developed. This book tries to provide materials to fill this gap.

Keywords: international politics; Non-governmental organization (NGOs); policy-making
