The CERI series in comparative politics and international studies


Contributing to the debate over whether states continue to be the prime agents in international relations, Cohen (CERI--Center for the Study of International Relations, Paris) re-examines the relations between states and three types of transnational non-state actors. They are non-governmental organizations in civil society, terrorists in transnational violence, and multinational firms in economics. La resistance des etats was published in 2003 by Editions du Seuil.
