Abstract and Keywords
This chapter focuses on international administrative tribunals, which are part of the internal systems of administration of justice put into place by international organizations (IOs) to settle employment disputes. Without them, staff members would have no other recourse. IOs are generally granted immunity from municipal jurisdiction, thus their employees are, in principle, unable to turn to national tribunals. The chapter begins by tracing the evolution of internal justice systems in IOs. It then discusses the institutional components of administrative tribunals. These components vary, depending on the needs of each organization and the choices made at the time of their creation. They have, however, a number of common features.
