This course is designed for undergraduate students who are either interested in social/political studies in general or international affairs in particular. As the course title states, the course introduces main categories of organizations that play important roles in today's world: 1) the United Nations; 2) regional inter-governmental organizations, e.g., the EU; 3) issue specific international regime and institution, e.g., WTO; 4) transnational non-governmental organizations, e.g., Greenpeace. When studying these organizations, particular attention will be paid to organizational history, structures, decision-making processes, and political effect. In addition, this course also leads students through the main theoretical frameworks developed by international relations scholars to explain the political relevance of international organizations.
