Lecture: Money, International Organizations, and the Turn Away from Collective Decision-Making

November 15, 2017 12:10pm - November 15, 2017 1:10pm
UC College of Law, Room 114

Speaker: Professor Jacob Katz Cogan, UC College of Law


International organizations require money to operate, a basic and anodyne fact that has manifold and fundamental consequences. The means by which organizations are financed and the methods by which budgets are decided shape the character of the organization, its relations with and between its member states, and its policy outcomes. This lecture will describe how international organizations are financed, and, in particular, it will show how contemporary means of financing have turned multilateral institutions into unilateralist ones.

Speaker: Prof. Jacob Cogan is the 2017 Harold C. Schott Lecturer
