Symposium: Recent Trends on the Administration of Justice in International Organizations

On February 7, 2013, the Department of Legal Services of the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States and the International Organizations Interest Group of the American Society of International Law will host a symposium on "Recent Trends on the Administration of Justice in International Organizations." Here's the idea:

The event will be divided into the following two panels:

Panel One: This panel will address the treatment by national courts of the privileges and immunities of international organizations (in particular, a discussion of cases in which national domestic courts exercise jurisdiction over international organizations' employment-related matters invoking, inter alia, the right to a fair trial and due process).

Panel Two: This panel will discuss the efforts by international organizations to offer an appropriate forum for labor-related dispute resolution, including recent trends in the administration of justice in the various international organizations.
