Chapter Summary

Contemporary international relations are characterized, in particular, by the existence of numerous institutions. The institutional system is a sub-system of the international system and has some features, which are inherent in the international system as a whole, such as stability, aspiration for development, hierarchy, diversity of its elements, and regulation by international law norms. The international institutional system should be subdivided into smaller structural systems (systems into subsystems) and it is possible to select out of it the institutions, which are united by the common name - international organizations. International non-governmental organizations (INGOs) are very significant actors in contemporary international relations. In conclusion, international non-governmental organizations are one of the parts of the international institutional system, actors of international non-power relations and have international legal subjectivity, i.e. they are subjects of international private law, which regulates these non-power relations.

Keywords: institutional system; international institutional system; international law; International non-governmental organizations (INGOs); international relations
