Chapter Summary

Vera Gowlland's contribution to international law includes a passion for taking the United Nations ('UN') seriously, not only as a site for generating international law, but also as an actor that should operate within the limits of international law. This chapter discusses the subject of subjects, and question whether this terminology is the most appropriate for understanding the obligations of international organizations such as the UN. It then addresses the question of how we conceive attribution when individuals may be seen as acting both on behalf of their government and an international organization. Again the chapter questions whether we have developed the most appropriate principles for attributing such conduct.

Keywords: international law; international organization; United Nations (UN); Vera Gowlland
