International law. There are a number of international laws that can affect the organisation’s activity. Some are international laws covering piracy and hijacking, others are more international conventions and agreements and cover items such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Trade Organisation (WTO) treaties, patents and trademarks legislation and harmonization of legal systems within regional economic groupings, e.g. the European Union.
Domestic laws in the home country. The organisation’s domestic (home market) legal system is important for two reasons.
