The last few years have witnessed several significant developments in respect of international organizations, most of which are best encapsulated in the word "change". In particular, international organizations have moved from their traditional role of facilitator of the activities of their members, to that of director of their own activities. As a result, there is increased scrutiny over issues relating to the governance, control, accountability and the privileges and immunities of international organizations. These subjects are all the focus of this book. Edward Kwakwa has collected together the best published work by leading authorities in the field on subjects of crucial importance and relevance to international organizations, particularly in the context of today's ever-increasing globalization. This book is of interest to scholars and students of law, as well as government and non-government practitioners and international civil servants.

The authors multinational experience, consulting and teaching expertise, enthusiasm for their subject, and engaging style of writing create an inviting foundation for the exploration of this multifaceted topic. Each chapter demonstrates the practicality of theory and how practice contributes to the development of theory, while challenging readers to build on established knowledge to develop new approaches to the pressing problems in complex, multicultural organizations. The text is organized topically around the most important issues in organizational communication. Five themes recur throughout the chapters: the interdependence of internal and external forms of organizational communication, the disciplinarity and multidisciplinarity of organizational communication, global and multicultural perspectives of organizational communication, the unity of theory and practice, and critical thinking in the analysis of organizational messages and discourses. Discussions highlight language and symbolism. The authors weave analysis of the multiple levels of messages throughout the chapters; stimulate critical thinking about contemporary work and organizational life; approach the familiar as unfamiliar; ask probing questions about commonly accepted practices; and offer more imaginative ways of working together. Readers gain an appreciation for the social, political, economic, technological, and ideological contexts in organizationsand the place of organizations within the broader culture. The authors lead by example in encouraging readers to think about, talk about, and experience organizational communication in entirely new ways.

Organizational change is the adoption of an organizational environment for the sake of survival. Namely, the old principles no longer work in the age of Globalization. Businesses have reached the old model's limits with respect to complexity and speed. At the same time, the challenge which new economy brings to small businesses managers is the use of new business approach and the strong will for organizational changes and adaptation to global market demands. There are several types of organizational changes that can occur- strategic changes, organizational cultural changes; involve organizational structural change, a redesign of work tasks and technological changes. In line with these changes, there is strong expectation of employee to permanent improve their knowledge and become an integral part of successful business formula in order to respond to the challenges brought by the global economy. It means a request for learning organization which is characterized as an organization creating, gaining and transferring the knowledge, and thus constantly modifying the organizational behavior. Reader will refine their theoretical understanding of globalization by studying its concrete manifestations in three domains: organizational culture, behavior, and gender.

The Limits Of Convergence

This book challenges the widely accepted notion that globalization encourages economic convergence--and, by extension, cultural homogenization--across national borders. A systematic comparison of organizational change in Argentina, South Korea, and Spain since 1950 finds that global competition forces countries to exploit their distinctive strengths, resulting in unique development trajectories. Analyzing the social, political, and economic conditions underpinning the rise of various organizational forms, Guillén shows that business groups, small enterprises, and foreign multinationals play different economic roles depending on a country's path to development. Business groups thrive when there is foreign-trade and investment protectionism and are best suited to undertake large-scale, capital-intensive activities such as automobile assembly and construction. Their growth and diversification come at the expense of smaller firms and foreign multinationals. In contrast, small and medium enterprises are best fitted to compete in knowledge-intensive activities such as component manufacturing and branded consumer goods. They prosper in the absence of restrictions on export-oriented multinationals. The book ends on an optimistic note by presenting evidence that it is possible--though not easy--for countries to break through the glass ceiling separating poor from rich. It concludes that globalization encourages economic diversity and that democracy is the form of government best suited to deal with globalization's contingencies. Against those who contend that the transition to markets must come before the transition to ballots, Guillén argues that democratization can and should precede economic modernization. This is applied economic sociology at its best--broad, topical, full of interesting political implications, and critical of the conventional wisdom.

International Organization in the Age of Globalization examines how the relentless process of globalization has affected the world's international organizations. Taylor primarily focuses on the United Nations and the wider UN system, but he also examines the involvement of the WTO, the World Bank and regional organizations such as the EU, ASEAN, ASEM, NAFTA, and MERCOSUR in these processes. This wide ranging study concentrates on three key areas--the maintenance of peace and security, the management of economic and social activity, and the protection of individual welfare--which provide illustrations of the changing relationship between international organizations and individual states, a central interaction in global organization.Clearly and provocatively written, this book will be essential for anyone interested in processes of globalization. Students and researchers in international relations, politics, economics and sociology will benefit from the author's insights into the changing nature of international organization in the twenty-first century.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Economics - International Economic Relations, grade: 1.2, Fontys University of Applied Sciences Venlo, language: English, abstract: Globalization presents risk and opportunities today and in the future. Transnational Organizations (TNOs) were the beneficiaries of the globalization; they expanded their activities aboard, created an international mentality and adapted their strategies for substantial growths. Many domestic markets of TNOs are already saturated and through the process of expanding abroad TNOs have been looking for new markets with a high growth potential. Nowadays, China represents a promising target for nearly every TNO. However, many TNOs fail to enter the Chinese market successfully or are not able to capitalize their potential. The purpose of this report is to conclude why China is attractive for TNOs, what the specific risks and challenges are, when operating in the Chinese market and on which aspects a TNO should focus when entering China. In order to answer these questions, the present economic situation, including the influences by the economic crisis, is analysed to demonstrate the relevance of the Chinese market. The current situation of TNOs in China is explored to provide an understanding of the different strategies to cope with the various challenges and risks in China. As a result an outline of the key success factors and most relevant strategic decision will give advice for the implementation of an efficient strategy. Transnational organizations have to target the Chinese market in order to remain competitive in the process of globalization. Poor infrastructures, different cultural behavior, copyright violations, fierce competition or concerns on the legal systems are risks that TNOs have to face in China. Therefore, transnational organizations need to implement efficient strategies in order to exploit their full potential in the Chinese market. Entering the Chinese market can be done
