Chapter Summary

The relationship between the organization and its officials as such is governed, neither by the national law of the host State, as maintained by some early writers, nor by international law, as maintained by the majority of writers, but by the internal law of the organization. The precise delimitation of the exclusive organic jurisdiction is important in order to determine the limits of the incompetence of foreign legislative, administrative and judicial authorities and in order to determine the limits which international law imposes upon the conflict of laws of each State. The relations discussed in this chapter, arising out of extended jurisdiction-unlike those arising under inherent jurisdiction-differ from one organization to another. Both types of relations are jure imperii and internal within the organization and fall outside the field of conflict of laws in the narrow sense (private international law).

Keywords:extended jurisdiction; internal law of the organization; internal relations; jure imperii; organic jurisdiction; private international law
