Exclusion from Participation in International Organisations: The Theory and Practice Behind Member States' Expulsion and Suspension of Membership
This volume deals with expulsion from and suspension of membership rights in international organisations. This is an area of the law of international organisations which has attracted limited attention by academic writers. The book examines some 35 different international organisations by analysing the relevant provisions in their constitutive instruments and, where available, discussing the practice. Additionally, it describes in considerable detail the practice of rejecting delegations' credentials as a means of excluding Member States from participation. Moreover, it suggests solutions for those international organisations lacking expulsion and/or suspension clauses by applying the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties and the theory of countermeasures in international law, especially as codified by the International Law Commission. Finally, the book offers a model expulsion and suspension clause to be incorporated in existing or future international organisations.
