Non-Governmental Organizations and the International Criminal Court: Changing Landscapes of International Law

By Zoe Pearson


An exploration of claims that non-governmental organizations (NGOs) influence the formation of international law focuses on NGO participation in the multilateral negotiations to form the International Criminal Court. It is shown that, although NGO\u27s can contribute to international lawmaking processes, their participation remains ad hoc, contingent, \u26 characterized by conflicting viewpoints. However, existing international lawmaking is attempting to accommodate the diversity of global civil society actors even though deeply entrenched traditional constructions of international law tend to limit their involvement.
