The various Panels in this Section address questions from leadership to representative bureaucracy ('people'), from relations between member states and the administration(s) to political dynamics inside the bureaucracies ('power'), from the efficiency of international bureaucracy to its influence on public policy-making and its relevance for implementation of policies ('performance').
