New Database to Research International Institutional Law: Oxford International Organizations

Posting by Sherry Xin Chen: “Oxford University Press (OUP) has just released a new database specialized in international institutional law, Oxford International Organizations (OXIO). OXIO is “the first of its kind” to aid users in their research and understanding of the “acts and practices of international organizations”, an integral part of public international law. OXIO contains key documents of international organizations, including, but not limited to, resolutions and decisions, draft normative texts, constituent instruments, relevant court decisions and occasionally, treaties that bind the organizations. In addition to the original source text, the database provides expert commentary for each key document. The editorial content helps users grasp “the full bearing of international organizations”, discussing the core issues, background, summary, analysis, and impact of those key documents. The database is also powered by the Oxford Law Citator, which enables researchers to follow citations and other links in other OUP databases.
OXIO is accessible from the Oxford Public International Law platform, alongside Oxford Reports on International Law and the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law—both of which are also available on BC Law’s Database List, Access to OXIO is currently free until the end of June 2018.”
