Public International Law: International Organizations

Guidance for researching subjects related to public international law.
Please note that documents of international organizations are not listed under the ICJ statute. While they are not considered binding or even subsidiary sources of law, they can be incredibly important for research. These materials can usually be found on the website for the organization. This can include declarations, resolutions, assembly speeches and debates, research reports, etc.

Because many of these documents are not available in print (with the exception of historical UN materials and travaux preparatoires), this is an area of research where Google is your friend.
