International organizations are at the heart of many global issues today. This new textbook looks at the leading international organizations and explains how they both shape and are shaped by international politics.

The book examines three themes: the legal obligations that give international organizations their powers; the mechanisms that elicit compliance by their member states; and the practices of enforcement in the organization. Each chapter shows how international organizations work in practice and the interactions between them and their member states.

This fresh text provides a comprehensive understanding of what international organizations do, how and why they do it, and the challenges they face.

  • Offers a fresh approach in which each chapter offers a detailed account of the most important international organizations: what they do, how and why they do it, and the problems they face
  • Combines insights from politics and law
  • Topical and extensive case studies show students how each international organization works in practice, and each chapter ends with a list of discussion questions to guide student discussion
