Chapter Summary

The review of selected developments providing individuals and groups access to justice to enforce international law and remedy specific breaches of international law or IGO policies has shown numerous avenues provide opportunities to influence the development of international norms. They reflect responses to GCS and public pressure and demands for accountability for harms caused by violations of international law and for more transparent processes when public interests are mediated. Individuals, NGOs and corporations can turn to an increasing number of fora in which to file or participate in adjudicatory proceedings involving issues of international law, including against States and individuals for the breach of international obligations. Other mechanisms enable non-State actors to hold IGOs accountable when failure to follow their procedures causes harm. This Chapter examines some of these developments. It acknowledges that although decisions formally do not create law, their practical effect exceeds their formal legal status.

Keywords: adjudicatory decisions; global civil society (GCS); IGO; international law; NGOs
