Sovereign nations share the international system with a host of non-state transnational actors. Some of these entities, such as the United Nations, have been created by states themselves, often as a result of the need to jointly solve a common problem. Other international entities, such as Amnesty International or Oxfam, are created when members of society organize across traditional national boundaries to deal with a collective concern. To understand and explain contemporary world politics we need to consider these institutions, both public and private, as key actors influencing issues of war and peace.

Although transnational actors are not new on the world stage, the number and type of these international entities expanded dramatically after World War II. This collection examines both the rise of these post-war transnational actors and their effect on international politics and policies.
