The employment law of international organizations—'international administrative law'—is foundational to the effectiveness of multilateralism. Derived from public international law, it is intended to secure the integrity and impartiality of the international civil service. Since international administrative tribunals adjudicate employment-related disputes involving such international officials, this law also affords the only compulsory judicial accountability of international organizations. Consequently, in this lecture, we shall examine the legal basis of international administrative law; consider the way this aligns to the achievement of the many mandates of international organizations; and using a case study—focusing on performance management at international organizations—see how key legal principles are transposed into operational cultures.
