At the beginning of this course we looked at the functions of purposes of laws, such as protection from violence, a mechanism to settle disputes etc, we need to extend the rule of the law to the international level for the same purposes. 2. International law involves relationships among states (countries) not individuals. 3. There is no world government to enforce the laws. The closest thing is the un security council which can make resolutions to end armed conflicts but the un has no police or troops of its own to enforce these resolutions. It has to member countries to volunteer troops to intervene to stop conflicts. These countries may only volunteer if they feel it is in their best interest as well. Eg the un could not only get countries to send troops to stop the genocide in Rwanda, but the Americans were quick to volunteer in 1991 when Iraq invaded Kuwait because oil interests were at stake. Today most UN peacekeeping missions are done by 3rd world countries. 4. Way back in history, the term sovereignty referred to the power of a sovereign (king or queen) to make over his territory without interference from other states.

The global context go against the nuclear weapons we can see how US and Russia had agree to reduce more the nuclear heads (they already agree long ago (the end of the cold war) to reduce their nuclear heads but recently they agree to reduce it even more), we could also mention that the German government (Guido Westerwelle) wants to open a debate to see if the US can remove their nuclear heads that they still in Germany (even when it’s going to make 20 years since the end of the cold war). US, UK, France and Germany condemn Iran for maintaining the nuclear program in secret, China and Russia are worried and also against, this are the so-called group of 5 + 1 (the five permanent members of the security council + Germany), this group wants that the OIEA go to Teheran and Qom and second they want the uranium to be purify out of Iran.

...As an international student, what is the biggest problem to you? For me, the biggest problem is understands the lecture. If I can’t understand the lecture, then I won’t get a good grade. So I have to use one semester to fix it. When I faced this problem, first I should do is analysis, then find good solutions. Preview and review the class are the two best way to help me to solve this problem, even though it will cost some free time. Firstly, I will explain that why I meet this problem. As an international student, study by second language is too difficult, I can not understand the class clearly. For example the chemistry class, there have huge vocabulary in that class which I don’t know. So I couldn’t understand the lecture and I got a bad grade on the exam. And other class also has this problem. So it bring me a lot of trouble, I can’t finish my homework and getting a bad grade. Secondly, the problem has two worst parts, and one of them is I can not finish the homework. First, if I can not finish the homework, I can not study the knowledge of this course clearly. For instance, the homework includes a lot of main points of the class. If I can’t finish the homework, I won’t pick up the main points. Second, if I can not finish the homework, I will have some negative feeling of this class. For example, if I can’t finish my homework, I feel this class is too hard to study and, to get a good grade. So I will dislike this class. Thirdly, the other worst part is I can......

International System

...The international system has been in transition from the patterns of relations or inter dependence amongst states; i.e. economic, military or political to the major actors in the international scene. With the increased globalization and technological advancements, the international system has embraced non state actors such as international organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGO’s), Multinational corporations etc. which have emerged on the international legal landscape playing an important a role in virtually every aspect of international law. The advent of non-state actors such as inter governmental organization, non-governmental organizations, individuals, peoples or trans-national corporations has changed the outlook on contemporary international law. Non state actors have become a constant factor in modern international relations and they play a vital role in almost every field of international law and regulation. Amongst non state actors in the international system, international organizations are the most functional and they hold prominent position in the creation of international law. A major difference between the 19th and 21st century international law is the prominent position now occupied by international organizations. International Organizations International Organizations are established by States through international agreements and their powers are limited to those conferred on them in their constituent document in other words, they enjoy......

...International marketing is the use of advertising standards in more than one nation, by organizations abroad or beyond national borders. It is an act of considering international tastes and trends in order to market a particular product globally. International marketing is an expansionary version of a locally produced marketing plan which takes into account marketing identification, targeting, and decisions internationally. It is essential for global marketing teams to understand and perceive the local cultures, trend and traditions to ensure efficient marketing campaign. Advertising methods and language used need to be appropriately chosen to prevent any adverse impact on the potential consumers leading to loss of sales. A complete and meaningful marketing plan should be developed consisting of marketing techniques, budgets and strategies. McDonald's first established in India was in the year 1996. The company made endeavours to overcome the misunderstanding that Indians had in the beginning about the product being western..Considering the fact that Indians avoid pork , bacon and meat, McDonald's should print out an absolute vegetarian menu to satisfy the local consumers that the meals are in line with their tastes and preferences. Distinct forms of mass media can also be used, for instance, billboards, brochures or posters.

...rifts in businesses around the world. Many incidents occur where a country will place an embargo on another country for their differences in values which halt trading. Also a foreign might be very difficult to assess. This means there are laws or political forces in place that foreign investors have to work around. Furthermore forces can be interrelated because a foreign market could have abundance in labor but the work force is not very skilled. The management would then have to choose whether to install specialized machinery or hire a larger labor force and install less expensive machinery. 11) What examples of globalization can you identify within your community? How would you classify each of these examples (e.g., international investment, international trade)? Globalization exists everywhere in my community, especially living in Southern California. Almost everything I use or own has been made possible by globalization. Many companies in my community, including the one I work for, have their headquarters here and have plants that exist overseas where they are produce a quality product at a cheaper price. Since the company has its manufacturing plants overseas the majority of the materials used are purchased from a foreign market....

India’s territory is rich in wildlife, hosting exotic and unique animals and plants. However, many of these species are in danger with the expansion of polluting industries. Ankit says that although environmental laws have been passed as to regulate factories, most of these laws are ignored.

... International Economics Monica Jones ECO/372 December 1, 2015 Larry Olanrewaju International Economics What does the president and congress do to stimulate the economy? What does the president and congress do to contract the economy? The president and congress can stimulate the economy by creating tax cuts, creating job bills and funding state and local governments. Tax cuts would allow companies to retain more of their earnings. The goal is that large corporations and small businesses would then turn around and hires more employees. Another benefit of tax cuts would be increased capital expenditures spending. A jobs bill would be directly aimed at creating jobs in the small business sector. The goal would be to increase the availability of credit for all small businesses. The creation of jobs bill would be aimed at increasing SBA lending and lowering capital gains taxes, which would encourage entrepreneurship and investments. Funds disseminated to local governments have the greatest multiplier effect. By getting funds to these governments, it would allow states to stop raising taxes on residents and from cutting needed services, which would help lower the unemployment rate and not further punish overly-taxed residents. In order to contract the economy, Congress and the President cut spending and program to cool the economy. If done correctly, the reward is an ideal economic growth rate of around......
