Research one international organization, how it was formed, its goals and objectives, and highlight its major programs and accomplishments since it was
established. What are its greatest contributions to global politics, trade, and economy? Present it through a diagram.
1. Briefly outline the main reasons that states choose to act through international organizations. Explain how these motives vary depending on the issue areas that organizations may address.
One reason states choose to act through international organizations is that they are prominent partners in most critical events in global politics. For example, UN peacekeeping organizations have succeeded in most of their missions through early warning, fact-finding, mediation, and other means of conflict resolution at the global level. International organizations successfully resolve conflicts because of their ability to maintain neutrality in managing political conflicts and disputes between states. Second, states act through international organizations to centralize collective functions using a powerful and stable organizational framework and a supportive legal system. Therefore, states operating through these organizations increase joint operations’ effectiveness and improve the organization’s capacity to build understanding and protect states’ interests and environment. For international organizations addressing climate change and environmental protection facilitating cooperation among nations to contribute their efforts in this issue. Third, states act through international organizations to facilitate their international trade participation by reducing transaction costs and sharing information and ideas. International organizations promote trade between nations by performing and encouraging specific tasks, legalizing or delegalizing specific ideas and operations, and boosting their abilities and power.
The above motives vary depending on the issue area that organizations may address. For example, an international organization concerned with peacekeeping missions in particular states is associated with a motive different from those concerned with economic development. The variation in international organizations’ activities dictates the motive for a state to act through these organizations. Thus, a country facing political instability will act through an international organization to resolve conflicts and achieve stability.
