In a world of complex policy problems, coordination and cooperation with external actors has become a major topic in Public Administration and International Relations. International bureaucracies often have to deal with cross-cutting issues, and they operate in fragmented organizational fields of overlapping ‘territories’ and conflicting goals. Furthermore, international bureaucracies are increasingly dependent on support from other external actors. This panel examines how, why, and with what success IOs and their bureaucracies interact with other IOs and non-governmental actors for meeting their organizational needs and broader policy goals. The papers explore such interactions in various policy fields, such as global health, refugee policy, and intellectual property.
