“This thorough revision and rejuvenation of the editors’ groundbreaking collection Rethinking International Organizations is another fundamental contribution to the study of international organizations.” • Bob Reinalda, Radboud University Nijmegen


Despite the sustained scholarly attention that the United Nations and international NGOs have received in the twenty-first century, they still remain under-researched from a management studies perspective. This volume brings together rich analyses of these organizations’ functioning, arguing that they are best understood as intermediaries between international decision-making and funding bodies in the developed world and initiatives that take place on the ground, primarily in the Global South. Based on current management research, this follow-up to Rethinking International Organizations (Berghahn, 2002) provides a wealth of both empirical and theoretical insights, along with practical recommendations how these organizations can function more effectively.

Dennis Dijkzeul is Professor of Conflict and Organization Research at the Social Science School and the Institute for International Law of Peace and Armed Conflict at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany. He also teaches at the School of International and Public Affairs of Columbia University in New York.

Dirk Salomons is a Special Lecturer in humanitarian policy at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. From 2002 to 2015, he directed SIPA’s Humanitarian Policy Track and its International Organizations Specialization. After many years at the United Nations, he became Managing Partner at the Praxis Group, an international consulting firm, which he led from 1997 until 2012.
