Jurgen Brohmer, German Yearbook of International Law Okeke delivers beautifully on what he set out to do, creating a vade mecum on the law and practice of jurisdictional immunities of States and international organisations. ... there is no doubt in the mind of this reviewer that Okeke's book will be on the desk right next to the computer of anybody who sets out to write about the immunity of States and international organisations in the foreseeable future, be it as a student, be it as a scholar, be it as a
practitioner, or be it to engage in lofty doctrinal debates in any of these capacities. A wealth of information, diligently collected and analysed, cogently delivered and explained, a true treasure trove. A must have for any decent library of international law and anybody working around this subject.

Sandie Okoro, Senior Vice President and Group General Counsel, The World Bank Group The importance of privileges and immunities to the functioning of international organizations cannot be overemphasized, and this comprehensible book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the immunity of international organizations from the jurisdiction of national courts. All those who work for, work with, or are interested in international organizations should make sure they have a copy on their desk!

Jan Paulsson, Professor of Law, University of Miami, and Founding Partner, Three Crowns LLP By what authority do courts and tribunals pass judgment on the conduct of sovereigns and international organizations? The ground is well traversed with respect to the former, less so in the case of the latter. The fruit of impressive and wide-ranging research, resolutely giving primacy to experience rather than theory, this book reveals the functional similarities and disparities of the immunities of these two types of entities, and in so doing, leads the reader to a
more profound understanding of both.
