Secondary law of International Governmental Organisations (IGOs) as Source of International Law.
There is a disagreement as to whether secondary acts adopted by IGOs constitute a source of law or whether, being a derivative source of law, they do not form part of general international law.
- Primary law refers to treaties.
- Secondary law refers to acts adopted by IGOs on the basis of primay law. E.g. UNGA, UNSC, etc.
Modern theories have sustained that these secondary laws are an independent sources of law (e.g. resolutions of General Assembly of the United Nations).
