Poli 252: International Organizations and Global Issues

The goal of this course is to help students develop a theoretical as well as practical understanding of international organizations and the global problems that they attempt to address. Particular emphasis is placed on students’ ability to think critically, both about the nature of problems that states face as well as development of global governance mechanisms. Upon completion of the course, students are expected to be able to articulate the leading explanations within political science for why IOs exist, the conditions under which they can help solve global problems, the major challenges they face in meeting their objectives, and assess the effectiveness of specific IOs.
