Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) by Richard Woodward

Book Description

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is one of the least written about and least understood of our major global institutions. This new book builds a well-rounded understanding of this crucial, though often neglected, institution, with a range of clearly written chapters that: * outline its origins and evolution, bringing its story fully up-to-date * present a clear framework for understanding the OECD * set the institution within the broader context of global governance * outline key criticisms and debates * evaluate its future prospects. Given the immense challenges facing humanity at the start of the 21st century, the need for the OECD as a venue where the world's leading states can discuss, on an informal and ongoing basis, the conundrums of globalization has never been greater. The clarity and rigour of these chapters cut through the layers of misunderstanding and misconception that surround the OECD, often dismissed as a 'rich-man's club', 'a think-tank' and 'a consultative forum'. This new book dismantles these labels to provide a holistic understanding of the organization. This concise and accessible introduction is essential reading for all students of international relations, politics and world history and affairs.
