Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Regime theory is a state-centric theory in which international organizations are considered as structure. The purpose of the research presented is to incorporate organizational aspects into regime theory for expanded opportunities to understand the agency of international organizations. The study provides the reader with a theoretical study and an illustrative example of its use, The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).To include international organizations in regime theory, an interpretative epistemology needs to replace the state-centric view of traditional regime theory. The theory will then be prove itself to be flexible and useful in the study of international organizations.The OECD illustrates the uses of the expanded theory through its importance as a source of knowledge and as an example of a learning and changing organization.
