Emnets innhold:
The course will provide empirical knowledge and a theoretically informed understanding of the role and work of IOs, drawing on existing literature and debates about IOs as agents of or arenas for state power and IOs as agents in their own right, including theories of international bureaucracies, advocacy networks, trans-governmental networks, epistemic communities and communities of practice.
The course seeks to give an advanced, graduate-level introduction to the emergence, expansion and influence of International Organizations, with an emphasis on the post-Cold War period. It will also provide a good overview of the daily life of IOs, both global (esp. the UN, World Bank, ILO) and regional (esp. NATO, EU, AU, OSCE), as well as of IO-IO cooperation and competition. Those who complete the course should be able to grasp the role and power of IOs in the international order and in governing global politics in different policy fields.
