This Panel addresses the question of how various constituencies – state as well as non-state actors and groups thereof – are represented in international organizations (IOs). It understands representativeness as both a functional and a normative imperative for successful governance. At the same time, it seeks to understand why constituencies vary so significantly in their representation in many IOs’ core bodies, examples including the (under-)representation of less developed countries, of rising powers, or of various societal actors. The contributions focus on the political decision-making bodies within the IOs as well as on their administrative apparatuses, the international secretariats. The panel maps the core concept of representativeness through contributions both empirical and conceptual/theoretical in nature.
