POS 3250 - International Organizations

3 cr
This course will be an analysis of the purposes, structures, and processes of a wide variety of both governmental and non-governmental international organizations, with a particular emphasis on the reasons for the growing significance of such organizations in the contemporary international community. A major focus will be the United Nations and its evolving roles in the post-Cold War era. We will use the issue of the relationship between human rights and national interests as a perspective for organizing our analysis of the development of international organizations as possible alternatives to, or adjuncts of, the sovereign nation state.
Prerequisite: POS 1030  or POS 2040 .
