Chapter Summary

The most recent developments in the International Community bring to light the current active presence in international relations, apart from States, the principal and original subjects of International law, of new 'actors', such as Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). NGOs have several goals: humanitarian, religious, political, scientific and social. They are usually organized in structures similar to those of intergovernmental organizations. The importance of the role played by NGOs in the elaboration and implementation of international law as well as in the solution of humanitarian crises which periodically occur, their advisory status in intergovernmental organizations, and the debate concerning their international legal personality during the negotiations of international agreements, is all elements which demonstrate that the issue examined is highly topical.

Keywords: International law; international regulatory function; Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)
