International Organizations and Public Policy
0.5 Credit

This course explores international organizations' contributions to transnational or "multilevel" governance and the instruments (both hard and soft) that they can wield. Students assess the role of international organizations in transnational policy diffusion by focusing first on major international organizations such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the OECD and then examine key policy areas such as the environment, food and development.
