In this article the author points out the similarity between military occupations and certain activities by international organizations. It therefore examines the question whether the international of law of occupation is applicable and if so, adequately, to these activities, and more specifically to international transitional civil administrations. The experiences in Kosovo and East-Timor serve as examples and may lead to some important lessons for dealing with the current situation in Iraq.
