This long-awaited introduction to international organizations covers the entire breadth of the subject in a way that will be welcomed by students and teachers alike. Professors Karns and Mingst trace the evolving roles both of IGOs, NGOs, states, and nonstate actors and of norms, rules, and other pieces of global governance. While they give extensive attention to the UN system, the full range of regional and subregional organizations is also thoroughly covered, as are the activities and influence of a variety of nonstate actors. Each of four issue-based chapters-on peace and security, economic development, human rights, and the environment-presents a contemporary case study and then examines the issues and the pieces of global and regional governance that are involved. Throughout, the authors highlight questions of the legitimacy, accountability, and effectiveness of global governance.
