Additional Information for Non-State Actors and International Law
The advent of non-state actors such as intergovernmental organisations, non-governmental organisations, individuals, peoples, or transnational corporations has changed our outlook on contemporary international law. Non-state actors have become a constant factor in modern international relations and they play a vital role in almost every field of international law and regulation. Issues of controversy and debate connected with the participation of non-state actors in the international system include the attribution of independent legal personality and concomitant legal capacities, the effectiveness of non-state actors in international negotiations, including the liability of non-state actors in national and international legal systems, and the relative lack of judicial protection of non-state actors.

The object of the Journal is to further understanding of non-state actors and their relationship inter pares, and with state actors. It looks upon non-state actors from all possible angles, exploring, from an interdisciplinary perspective, their role in society; their position in the international legal system, their role in international law-making; their contribution to the development of international law and procedural aspects of their participation before national and international courts and tribunals.
