A major difference between 19th- and 21st-century international law is the prominent position now occupied by international organisations. The size and scope of international organisations vary. They may be bilateral, sub-regional, regional, or global, and they may address relatively narrow or very broad concerns. The powers and duties allocated to them also differ widely; some are legally recognised as international actors - and thus are liable for breaches of international legal obligations - while others are not.
