POL 3 (International Organization) aims to expand students’ knowledge and understanding of co-operation and conflict in the global system as introduced in POL 2. It does so by focusing on co-ordinated attempts to address global problems, on the many forms such co-ordination takes,and the role of power in these processes.
The course has the following objectives:
- to develop students’ understanding of the main theoretical approaches to the study of co-operation and conflict in international politics.
- to provide students with a basic grasp of the core purposes and functions of global governance institutions and actors (such as the United Nations, World Trade Organization and World Bank, and various non-state actors, such as Non-Governmental Organizations and private regulatory organizations)
