Common Law of International Organizations brings together all the elements pertaining to the theory of objective legal personality, which have so far only been presented separately. The legal theory outlined in this book is fully compatible with modern requirements of good governance and accountability of international organizations, and is in line with the ideal of systemic integration of legal regimes constituting the internal law of the organization.

It is in and through practices - deeds that embody shared intersubjective knowledge - that social life is organized, that subjectivities are constituted and that history unfolds. One can think of dozens of different practices (from balancing, to banking or networking) which constitute the social fabric of world politics. This book brings together leading scholars in fields from international law and humanitarianism to nuclear deterrence and the UN to provide effective new tools to understand a range of pressing issues of the era of globalization. As an entry point to the study of world politics, the concept of practice accommodates a variety of perspectives in a coherent yet flexible fashion and opens the door to much needed interdisciplinary research in international relations. International Practices crystallizes the authors' past research on international practices into a common effort to turn the study of practice into a novel research program in international relations.
