INTR12-206: Global Institutions and Conflict Resolution


Global institutions have evolved from the flurry of the institution-building decades of the 1940s and 50s to represent an important and embedded feature of today's globalised, connected and interdependant world. This course examines the nature, role and impact of global institutions in providing an appropriate multilateral framework for resolving conflicts in international relations, particulatly relating to: i) traditional inter-state conflicts ii) breaches of international norms; and iii) contemporary transnational threats, such as climate change, terrorism and nuclear proliferation. Specific global institutions to be reviewed through this course include (but will not be limited to) the United Nations (UN), the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), African Union (AU), Association of Southeast Asian States (ASEAN), and ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), and the International Criminal Court (ICC).
