PSCI 242 - International Organizations

4 credits
The theory and practice of international organizations (IOs) is a dynamic and increasingly important dimension of world politics. Scholars debate whether IOs serve as venues in which learning processes can occur and expectations about norms of international interaction can be created and reinforced, or whether they are merely another venue in which states pursue their national interests. This course will provide an introduction to the field, focusing on the role of IOs in three principal areas: peace and security, human rights, and humanitarian and development assistance. It will serve as a particularly relevant class for students who may want to participate in the UN semester, as it will provide a grounding in various theories of IOs and their value in the international system.
