This study offers a broad overview of how international organizations evolved to serve the goals of their members, how the constitutional charters of organizations provide a coherent statement of these goals, and how these organizations are assuming increasing authority in the international system. Gibson traces the history of international organizations, including the United Nations, and describes the prime goals of organizations and legal-political processes. The book also includes a case study of the progression of international human rights law, focusing on the efforts of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.
