Global and Regional Governance
- Using both the official websites of major international organizations and news media websites evaluate the activities of the international organizations. Are the international organizations achieving their goals? Are some organizations more successful than others? Why do you think this is the case?
- One of the major complaints about international organizations is that they tend to overlap and replicate the activities of other organizations. Using the Internet, research this argument. Is it true? If duplication of efforts does exist, is it a bad thing?
- Rate the effectiveness of NGOs. Pick groups active in human rights promotion, environmental protection, and social justice. Compare what the groups’ websites say they do with media reports about the groups. Prepare a multimedia presentation of your findings.
