Abstract

This brief Comment responds to Jan Klabbers’ recent EJIL article, ‘The Transformation of International Organizations Law’. It focuses on three points: the use of polemical style and disengagement with substance ; the question of whether we can do without some form of functionalism; and the further question of what it means to speak of ‘responsibility beyond functionalism’.

Keywords: Responsibility, international organizations, immunities, functionalism, liability

JEL Classification: K33
