Chapter Summary

This chapter gives attention to some issues arising out of the treatment of inter-governmental organisations and their personnel by host States. It suggests that attempts to resolve the issues by applying the provisions of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations by analogy could lead to results that are unfair to organisations and their personnel, results that were certainly never contemplated, much less intended, by the framers of those provisions. International organizations possess international personality when they fulfill certain objective preconditions: an international agreement creating an association of States endowed with at least one organ which expresses a will detached from that of the member States and possessing defined aims and purposes to be attained through the fulfillment of functions or powers.
