Chapter Summary

International organizations, of the most distinct kinds and characteristics, have effectively modified the structure of International Law. International organizations have, for more than six decades, echoed the aspirations of humankind of pursuit of the ideal of realization of justice, and have furthermore given their contribution to that end. The international legal personality of the United Nations and, a fortiori, of other international organizations, was soon to obtain judicial recognition. The considerable contribution, particularly of the United Nations, for the formation of the new international agenda of the XXIst century, by means of the adoption of the final documents of the recent U.N. World Conferences, has regrettably not been accompanied pari passu by the adoption of all the necessary changes in its internal structure, so as to equip adequately the world Organization to face effectively the new and great challenges of the contemporary world.
