This book has investigated the influence of international bureaucracies in world politics. Drawing on the core findings of the Managers of Global Change (MANUS) research project, it has demonstrated that bureaucracies have a significant autonomous influence as actors in global environmental policy which at times exceeds expectations. Through nine case studies, the book has suggested that bureaucracies act as knowledge brokers, negotiation facilitators, and capacity builders in international politics. In addition to influencing global agendas, bureaucracies shape international negotiation processes and make international cooperation work by assisting in national implementation. This chapter shows how the autonomous influence of international bureaucracies in world politics varies considerably in both degree and type, and offers an explanatory model to account for this variation.

Keywords:   influence, international bureaucracies, world politics, MANUS, environmental policy, knowledge brokers, negotiation facilitators, capacity builders, international cooperation, international negotiation
