(p.135) Chapter Five The International Executive
International Law and the Future of Freedom

John H. Barton

Stanford University Press

This chapter explores the institutions and institutional changes needed to meet human rights demands, focusing on international executive power. It first discusses the functions of the domestic executive, and how the power of that executive is both facilitated and controlled by the governmental structure within which the executive operates. The chapter then turns to the differences between the international executive and the domestic executive, and to the appropriate methods to facilitate and control the international executive. Next, it considers the implications of this analysis in the context of functional organization, of the United Nations, of the international financial institutions (IFIs), and of the G-7/G-8. The chapter concludes with integrated recommendations.

Keywords:   human rights, international executive power, national executives, functional organization, United Nations, international financial institutions, G7
