What are the major actors of the global political system? • 1. States – these are the actors with organized militaries and members of military alliances such as NATO. They control the territory of the world and much of its resources including human beings. • 2. International Institutions – Really another way to say states as these are the members of the international institutions. They include: the UN, European Union, World Bank, IMF, WTO, ILO etc… • 3. International Non-Governmental Institutions – Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, Oxfam, Red Cross/Red Crescent, Mafia/Drug Cartels, Al Qaida and other transnational terrorists. • 4. Multi-National Corporations (MNCs) – economically focused but can get involved directly in politics. Especially poor countries compete for foreign direct investment (FDI) and capital provided by these corporations. • Human Beings/transnational classes – All six billion of us and/or major individuals who assert their power for good or ill (Nelson Mandela, Osama bin Laden). Emphasis on classes is a Marxist tendency.
