The study of international organizations and bureaucracies has traditionally been dominated by scholars with a political economy background. After all, in the domain of global trade, finance, health, development policy and environmental affairs, international organizations play a significant role. International bureaucracies in the field of security affairs are, however, also rapidly becoming subject to academic interest. This is a logical result of the fact that international bureaucrats are playing an increasing role in issues such as the planning of peacekeeping operations or the verification of disarmament agreements. We know now much more about the contribution of, for example, the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations or the European External Action Service. Papers in this panel seek to further develop this research agenda in three ways. First, the panel includes papers that apply international organization theories more systematically to security bureaucracies. Second, it includes papers that take a comparative perspective analyzing multiple security bureaucracies. Third, it includes papers which focus on the role of security bureaucracies in terms of implementation of mandates.
