International Organisations Academy
- Course ID : OCSAIO2017
- Available Sessions: Summer Session I, II, III, IV
- Skills : Open Enrollment
International Organisations are getting more and more important. Our world is becoming ‘smaller’ due to the close political, business and economic ties between countries. In such a globalised world, cooperation through International Organisations such as the United Nations, NATO, African Union, Association of South-East Asian Nations, European Union, Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, and the North-American Free Trade Area is crucial.
International Organisations Academy will introduce you to an extensive array of International Organisations and the way they work. Students will analyse case studies from interventions of International Organisations during international crises such as in Mali, Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq, as well as how to deal with tsunamis. The International Organisations Academy is the ideal programme for learning more about the worldwide institutional network of cooperating countries, how they work, what they do, and how they influence world politics.
