Summary

The fully illustrated Global Organizations series focuses on the world's top governing bodies, giving complete coverage to the organizations that make important economic, political, and social decisions. Enhanced by full-color photographs, maps, and graphs, as well as informative sidebars, each book vividly describes an institution's conception, structure, and mission. Titles in this series examine the economic, political, geographical, and historical framework of each organization, using an interdisciplinary approach. Readers will learn how globalization and interconnectedness are managed through political institutions and processes, as well as direct citizen action and consumer behavior. Student researchers will appreciate the invaluable reference features, such as a chronology, bibliography, and further reading section for each organization.

Coverage includes:

  • The relationship of the organization to nation-state sovereignty
  • Its power in organizational decision-making
  • The organization's role in building peace and stability, and fighting corruption
  • The relationship of the economy and economic development to war and peace
  • The relationship of the economy and economic development to the environment and natural resources
  • The conflict of conformity vs. regional distinctiveness when globalization and free trade are introduced
  • The achievements and criticisms of the organization.
