Summary/Abstract: Among the various other means of peaceful settlement of international disputes special place belongs to the settlement of disputes by international organizations and their organs. In the first part of the work the author briefly deals with international disputes, the obligation to resolve them exclusively by peaceful and the general role of international organizations in all of this. The second part of the paper contains short presentation of disputes settlement before the United Nations, including International Court of Justice, Security Council, General Assembly. The third part is dedicated to resolving disputes under the auspices of other universal international organizations (UN specialized agencies, IAEA, WTO, OPCW), the fourth deals with the settlement of disputes by the regional organizations, and the fifth refers to international bodies which are not international organizations (in particular, the International Criminal Court). In his final remarks the author concludes that there are more and more international organizations, that there the mechanisms for resolving disputes within are more and more diverse and more efficient, but that in some cases the practice continues to fail. When it comes to political disputes, in matters where competing interests collide, disputes still often tend to be tackled in the open or hidden use of force, although this is prohibited by international law. This is especially true in cases involving some of the great powers.
