Examines the reactions of domestic legal systems to the exigencies of international institutional cooperation, looking at to what extant states accept limitations of sovereignty for participation in international organizations, how domestic laws govern the granting of state powers, and how member state respond to the effects of the process of transfer of state sovereignty. Part I presents a comparative study of contemporary constitutional charters which provide authorization to limitations of sovereignty for participation in international organizations. Part II investigates how the process of transfer evolves within the core of international institutions. Part III examines the post-transfer phase.
