POLI:334 International Organizations and Law.

A study of the ways of managing the issues that arise from increasing interdependence among nation-states. The course explores the consequences of the growth of international organizations and the proliferation of treaties in areas of security; economics; the environment; and political, social and human rights. Primary attention is devoted to international governmental organizations, especially the United Nations and the World Court, but international nongovernmental organizations (e.g., Amnesty International and Greenpeace) are also considered. There are no prerequisites; however, POLI:131 or POLI:133 is recommended. 4 SH.
