    International organizations have long been deemed to contribute to the ‘salvation of mankind’; thus, controlling their acts was not an issue. This has changed in recent decades: international lawyers have struggled to find legal techniques to facilitate control of the acts of international organizations, ranging from formulating rules on the responsibility of international organizations to a Global Administrative Law approach. The purpose of this lecture is to provide an overview of these various techniques, discuss their weaknesses, and propose an (embryonic) alternative.
