Summary and Info
Akira Iriye challenged historians to join political scientists in the study of international non-governmental organizations, asserting in Global Community (2002) that this analysis provides a fresh perspective on the evolution of international relations and enables us to reconceptualize modern world history. Baldwin s study takes on this challenge arguing that Amnesty International has played a notable role in shaping U.S. foreign policy. Her study reveals that the policymaking environment has been, in part, re-shaped by the work of Amnesty International, consequently our understanding of the policymaking process would be enhanced by incorporating studies of INGOs and the significance of soft power into our policy studies.
