about

This new edition is a comprehensive manual of the rules of procedure for the conduct of business at the UN General Assembly, at international conferences and at assemblies of inter-governmental organisations such as the IAEA, ICAO, ILO, IMO and WHO. It examines the legal basis of these rules, the history of their development and the attempts at their codification. At the heart of the book is an examination of the practical applications of rules of procedure. Sabel also considers whether certain procedural rules and applications have become so well established that they have now attained the status of customary international law. The book is of interest to those involved in international law, international relations and international organisations. It also serves as a practical manual for delegates to the UN General Assembly and to international conferences.
Robbie Sabel is the former Legal Adviser and Deputy Director General of the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He is a Visiting Professor of International Law at the Hebrew University Jerusalem and at Tel-Aviv University.

Editorial Reviews

'Dr Sabel has performed a most remarkable service to the doctrine and practice of international law alike. His book is in fact a handbook of the rules of procedure applicable to international conferences which participants at such conferences will, in the future, ignore at their peril. It may safely be predicted that it will, in due course, become, for representatives at international conferences, the standard companion manual to the rules of procedure themselves and will guide representatives in their conduct of procedural business.' Yehuda Z. Blum, Israel Law Review
