This article examines the relationships between international organizations and private parties. Its purpose is to illustrate the correlation existing between the crisis in the dualism theory and the development of a global administrative law. The emergence of global administrative law is a combination of two connected phenomena. On the one hand, international regulation more directly affects private parties within states. On the other hand, mechanisms of participation and protection of private parties are increasingly provided for in the international settings, directly related to decisions adopted by international organizations. In this way, rules and legal principles of administrative law are drawn from domestic administrative law and are transplanted and adapted to the international context.
