This Section addresses various aspects of the design, impact, and changing landscape of international organizations (IOs). Contributions advance theoretical and conceptual frameworks for the study of international organizations and their bureaucracies. The Section brings together a diverse set of theoretical and methodological approaches, including papers that build bridges between International Relations, Public Administration, and Public Policy and papers that bring new methods to the study of international organizations. While nearly all panels make use of empirical applications from all policy issues and a diverse set of IOs, one panel focusses on security governance. Some panels explicitly address key concepts in current IO studies, such as the bureaucratic autonomy of IOs, the authority of IOs or their democratic quality. Others analyze policy change and continuity, IO representativeness, and IO responses to changing financial environments and budgeting pressures.
