This timely new title examines the importance and impact of major international organizations and their role in global governance. International Organizations in World Politics focuses on the most influential IOs, including the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization. For each organization, author Tamar Gutner describes their birth and evolution, governance structure, activities, and performance. A second chapter on each organization presents a case study that illuminates the constraints and challenges each IO faces. Regional organizations and issues are also examined, including the European Union and the euro crisis, as well as a case study on the African Union’s peace operations.

Review:

Gutner's text is a first-rate introduction to the study of international organizations. The rigorous engagement with existing literature brings intellectual clarity to the field, and the reviews of individual institutions in action help illuminate academic debates. --Liam Clegg"

Gutner s text enables students of international relations to develop insights on the role of IOs in the era of globalization. Case studies reveal the diversity and complexity of contemporary global issues that IOs face and the challenging tasks they must undertake to address them. This text is an essential resource that leads students to assess what we need to expect from IOs and how to evaluate their effectiveness. --Betul Gokkir"

Tamar Gutner s impressive new textbook skillfully presents the background and central analytical approaches to international organizations. Highly engaging, it is a genuine testament to how students can and should build their critical knowledge of the key international organizations. --Steven C. Roach"
