Chapter 2: The European Union in the law of international organizations
The chapter aims to investigate whether the EU serves as a model for other international organizations or whether it does not really fit that mould, and concludes that it does both simultaneously. The EU is an organization unlike any other, but has in important respects paved the way for others - not only by its particular structure and concrete activities, but also, and perhaps most importantly, on the epistemological level: it was the EU which was largely responsible for stimulating the possibility for international organizations to not only affect their member states, as traditionally supposed, but to directly reach individuals within those member states.
