Climate change, mass migration and terrorism: Effective international cooperation and institutions are more important than ever. But what makes international institutions effective?

This course answers this question by discussing up-to-date theoretical and empirical research on international institutions. We will examine when and why states pursue greater institutionalisation at the international level. By comparing international institutions, we will analyse why some of them function better than others. Specifically, we focus on institutional decision rules and we will focus on the relevance of domestic politics during the decision-making, ratification and implementation stages. Course material will cover a variety of international institutions and treaties, including regional organisations, preferential trade agreements, the WTO, the IMF, the Worldbank, the Paris Agreement and the UN.
