‘Intergovernmental organizations (IGOs)’ deals with the supranational organizations through which nations cooperate. IGOs can be specialized, like Interpol, regional, like the EU, or security-based, like NATO. The United Nations attempts to be a neutral organization and is most effective through its specialized agencies. Its record on conflict prevention is less good, but any attempt to increase its powers threatens its wide membership. Regional organizations such as the EU have been set up for the purposes of economic development through integration. Any further remit is harder to come by, as supranationalism is unpopular. IGOs, although not truly autonomous actors, can exert influence when their members are in agreement.
