Internationalorganizations class

Aninternational organization is an entity with an internationalmembership, scope or presence1.Notably, a well-defined hierarchal system is the main criteria thatshould be used to judge the quality of governance in internationalorganizations. In this case, an organization with effectiveleadership consists of different levels of management, power, andauthority. For instance, the World Trade Organization has theMinisterial Conference as the top-most decision-making body. Equallyimportant, the organization is made up of other bodies, for instance,the General Council consists of Committees on various aspects such asbudget, finance and administration.

Apartfrom that, there is also the Council for Trade in Services andGoods2.The quality of governance for international governmentalorganizations should be measured through accountability andself-sufficiency. Accountability refers to the manner in which anorganization uses its resources efficiently and in a more transparentmanner. On the other hand, organizations with quality governanceshould be independent. For instead, the readings gave an example ofWorld Bank where the biggest donors influenced the manner in whichloans were distributed. External forces should not control anindependent body. A real world example includes the European Unionwhich executes its legislative and executive functions independentlythrough its unions. It is also accountable for its operations3.

Inmy view, I don’t believe the United Nations Charter offers ablueprint for good governance. Based on the readings, allnation-states are free to join the UN provided that they accept itscharter. Nonetheless, the permanent members of the United NationsSecurity Council, for instance, Russia, United States, China,Britain, and France are the only states which have been givenauthority by the UN Charter to bring resolutions to the SecurityCouncil and propose them. Equally, they have the powers to rejectrecommendations from other member countries who do not form part ofthe five permanent states. Therefore, the UN charter has not providedalternative options that should be pursued by other member countriesin situations where they do not agree with the decisions of theSecurity Council. Based on their substantial amount of investmentsand the populations they represent, the UN Charter should be reviewedso that the permanent membership is extended to other member states.That will make their voice and resolutions to be considered.
