Would you like to learn more about the different roles and functions of International Organizations (IO) in world politics? Would you like to learn more about different themes and issues of IO in world politics? If so, you have to study this course about IO:s.

The course addresses and problematizes various contemporary theoretical and political discussions with regard to the role of formal international organisations. Various essential international and regional organisations within peace and safety, economy, and humanitarian issues are discussed on the basis of the structure, decision-making process and functions of these organisations. At least one international organisation and one specific current theme in the world or in Europe are discussed in detail.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
