Abstract

Exploring emergency politics of international organisations (IOs), this title also studies cases in which, based on justifications of exceptional necessity, IOs expand their authority, increase executive discretion, and interfere with the rights of their rule-addressees. This 'IO exceptionalism' is seen in crisis responses of a diverse set of institutions including the United Nations Security Council, the EU, and WHO. Through six in-depth case studies, the text analyses the institutional dynamics unfolding in the wake of the assumption of emergency powers by IOs.
