Political Science | International Organization: Political and Security Aspects
Y364 | 27931 | Rathbun


This course is an introduction to the topic of international
organization, which encompasses both formal international
institutions, but also some topics in international law.
International organization is the study of international
cooperation, in which states collaborate to bring more order to
their interactions. The course will expose students to the histories
of these organizations, but also give them a sense of the
contemporary challenges they face. Students will engage in debates
on issues currently facing these institutions. They include the
United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade
Organization, NATO, the European Union, and the International
Criminal Court.
