This chapter examines the relationship between U.N. delegation credentials and legal recognition, summarizing the substance of the major collective recognition controversies that have occurred in the course of the U.N. era. It also discusses controversies over delegation credentials and over ‘invitations’ of foreign military armed resistance. It also describes cases in Nicaragua, Grenada, and Panama, where the debate focused on the internal character of the incumbent regime, thereby bringing the competing considerations involved in establishing criteria for legal recognition.

Keywords:   U.N. delegation, legal recognition, foreign military, Nicaragua, Grenada, Panama
