“The international civil servant never quite belongs.”
- Kenneth Carlston
As Carlston pointed out, the exercise
of contractual or employment rights is not straightforward for international civil servants, inter alia, owing to the immunity of international organisations. The law applicable to their employment relationships and the procedures to be
followed in case of its violation are not always clear.
Dhinakaran International Law Consultancy specialises in assisting international civil servants on such matters, including representing them in appeals before
the internal appeals bodies and before specialized international administrative tribunals such as the United Nations Dispute Tribunal, United Nations Appeals Tribunal, and the International Labour Organization Administrative Tribunal. Assistance is also provided
to Staff Associations on conditions of service and in negotiations with Administration.
As part of the services offered, research on issues relating to public international law, law of international organisations
and international civil service law is also conducted in an extensive manner.
