International Law and Politics Working Group


The study of international institutions and international organisations (IOs) has gained new relevance with increasing geopolitical tensions, a demand for measurable impacts of global governance, and a shrinking fiscal space for multilateralism. This panel situates international institutions and IOs in interaction with the broader environment of global politics. The papers speak to the complexity of inter-institutional relations, the politics of resource mobilisation in IOs, as well as expertise and agency of international bureaucracies. The panel also sheds light on how new organisational forms interact with formal intergovernmental IOs. Hybrid institutional complexes and global governance complexes capture new modalities of cooperation with different degrees of formalisation and layering. The panel contributions offer findings based on the analysis of novel datasets and qualitative data. This panel consists of five paper contributions from scholars working on the inner life, relationships, and broader regime context within which international institutions and IOs operate. The panel offers a space for dialogue among scholars working on such diverse issues as financial regulation, global public health, chemical and nuclear non-proliferation, food security and agricultural development, peacekeeping, and African governance.
