O'Donoghue, Aoife (2015) 'The exercise of governance authority by international organisations : the role of due diligence obligations after conflict.', in International law and post-conflict reconstruction policy. London: Routledge, pp. 45-66. Post-conflict law and justice.
International legal scholarship largely ignores due diligence, yet its obligations do subsist. The Alabama Arbitration, the evolution of international economic, human rights and humanitarian law are all concerned with due diligence. During post-conflict transitions when international organisations hold governance roles normally associated with states the necessity of understanding the institution’s due diligence obligations becomes more apparent. In examining due diligence this article shines a light an important aspect of the operational role of law in regulating international organisations during transition when the duality of governance can cause legal obligations to become indistinct.
