Abstract

The authority of international organizations and bureaucracies had long been neglected in any social science discipline. Yet, in International Relations and in other social science disciplines, including Public Administration, the related theoretical, conceptual and empirical interest has been growing over the past ten years. Today, an increasing number of scholars in International Relations, Public Administration, and Organizational Sociology study the nature, determinants and consequences of different forms of authority that international bureaucracies may enjoy. This Panel seeks to bring together those scholars who either address the authority of international organizations in general or the authority of their administrations in particular. We are specifically interested in empirical studies that direct the attention to the determinants of political or delegated, expert or epistemic and moral authority of international bureaucracies and their consequences in national and/or international decision and policy-making processes.
