This Section addresses various aspects of the design, impact, and landscape of international bureaucracy, understood as the multitude of international administrations within or behind international organizations. The Section brings together a diverse set of theoretical and methodological approaches that build bridges between International Relations, Public Administration, and Public Policy. The Panels address questions from leadership to representativeness ('people'), from relations between member states and the administration(s) to political dynamics inside bureaucracies ('power'), from the efficiency of international bureaucracy to its influence on policy-making and its relevance for implementation of policies ('performance').
