In addition, most of the countries are also members of regional organizations within their region. But there is no “umbrella” organization or institution only for the regional organizations. Regional organizations may also want to exchange information on common problems and find relevant solutions on many issues of mutual and global concern. A global forum for international or regional organizations and relevant pri- vate industry should be established. The regional organizations have also recognized that a dialog between the organizations and relevant private companies is important.

These are, but not limited to: G 8 Group of States, Council of Europe, Organization of American States (OAS), Asia Pa- cific Economic Cooperation (APEC), The League of Arab States, African Union, The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), The Common- wealth, European Union, Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), NATO, and The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
