Recensioner i media
`Access to Justice and International Organizations is clearly written and provides an excellent introduction to the topic.. . . Overall, this book would be a good resource for academic law libraries, especially -- those that have an international law, international organization, or human rights focus.' - Karin Johnsrud, International Journal of Legal Information `Accountability fares high on the agenda of international lawyers. In this context, international organizations, long the embodiment of progress, have become suspect and the object of intense scrutiny. In his book, Pierre Schmitt provides us with a comprehensive and timely treatment of the legal avenues (and the limitations thereof) by virtue of which international organizations can be held accountable for human rights violations while also making audacious proposals. In doing so, he usefully continues international lawyers' quest for greater accountability in international society.' -- Jean d'Aspremont, University of Manchester, UK and University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands `This book tackles a complex question of contemporary international law and international life - legal remedies for individuals vis-a-vis international organizations. Focusing on human rights violations, it carefully analyses the institutional and procedural aspects of the right of access to justice, the procedural remedies currently available, and the effects of an intersection with immunity law. The book is an important resource for anyone working with the theory or practice of international organizations and human rights.' -- Catherine Broelmann, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands `As calls for a better balance between the immunity of international organizations and the legal protection of individuals become louder, this timely study not only analyses the tension between these two fundamental legal principles, but also presents a number of recommendations to solve the problem. This book is an essential contribution to a debate that has direct implications for all of those affected by the decisions of international organizations.' -- Ramses A. Wessel, University of Twente, the Netherlands
