Structures & Governance
In these weeks we examine the processes and forms of international organization with a focus on pragmatic concerns relating to international institutions like the United Nations. What keeps a large variety of members in organizations like the UN, despite the clear power imbalances that exist within them? Why are the actual workings of international organizations so often at odds with their declared objectives and principles?
