One of the driving forces behind globalization is internationalism, a system that seeks to balance national sovereignty with international cooperation, especially in pursuit of world peace and development. The objective of this weekâ€™s assignment is to understand internationalism as a driving force behind globalization.
(1) Select an international treaty that interests you (hereâ€™s a list of the big ones: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_treaties_by_number_of_parties (Links to an external site.)). Summarize the main objective of the treaty and tell us why it interests you. Is the treaty about world peace, world development, or something else?
(2) Explain one way the treaty recognizes national sovereignty (sovereignty means countries retain ultimate control over what happens within their borders).
(3) Explain one way the treaty seeks to embed sovereign countries in a transnational system of cooperation.
