Hide / Show Abstract

The basic rules of procedure are fairly uniform across international conferences to the point that they have been said to constitute customary international law. However, many organizations and conferences also have some rules and traditions that are specific and distinctive. These reflect their history, their purpose and the people who have shaped them. Participants in these conferences need to know about their special characteristics. But the differences from other organizations are also instructive as to the meaning and reasons for particular rules and processes in all conferences.
