are co-constitutive. Thus the period between the Congress of Vienna and World War I was not the period of ‘ preparation for international organisation’ (Claude, 1959 : 43), it should rather be seen as the founding period of world organization, the phase when the idea of organizing and organizations as such emerged in almost all fields of society, or the phase in which world society turned into a world organization society. This chapter aims to make three interrelated points: (1) the idea of organizing, that is establishing order, was deeply rooted in debates among

adapts to its institutional environment and conforms to external expectations ‘since violating them may call into question the legitimacy of the organisation and thus affect its ability to obtain resources and social support’ ( Tolbert, 1985 : 2). Regular adaption, however, is difficult to realize because it jeopardizes established routines and standardized procedures needed to stabilize decision-making processes. Organizations therefore form a dual structure; a formal and a working level ( Thomson, 1967 ). While conformity with expectations is ensured at the formal

Re-Pluralizing the Debate
Editors: and

Within International Relations scholarship, the nature of international organizations and their relationship with each other and nation-states has been widely contested. This edited volume brings together a team of experts to shed new light on inter-organizational relations in world politics.

The book covers areas from the rule of law and international security to business and sport. Through its analysis, it demonstrates that, just as inter-organizations relations themselves are diverse and complex, research on this topic should also be pluralistic in order to draw new and valuable results and insights.

Introducing organizational union identity This chapter explores the niche identities projected by unions that organise within membership territories defined by a single, or closely linked group of employers. What distinguishes them from all other unions is that their membership territories are determined not by industry, occupation or geography, but primarily by those of their members’ employers. The 12 organizational unions observed in the 2018 website survey had an average membership of 6,876, representing only 1.2 per cent of the membership of unions

Global Dynamics and Regional Particularities

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the evolution and particularities of regional organizations across Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe since 1945.

The authors analyze the membership dynamics and policy scopes of 76 organizations, and compare their opportunities and challenges in regional governance. They consider organizations’ competencies in eleven different policy areas, including trade, security and environment, and trace patterns in their development.

For those with interests in comparative regionalism, international relations, political science and international law, this is an essential companion to some of the world’s most significant organizations.

An Attachment Perspective
Author:

What makes some people more likely to initiate positive change within their organizations? Can this behaviour be influenced by management?

Employee proactivity has largely been understood in terms of employees changing their environment or changing themselves. In this novel study Wu offers an alternative lens through which to examine such behaviour – the concept of attachment theory.

Wu integrates the current understanding of motivational factors in shaping proactive workers, through his introduction to attachment theory, and development of it as a theoretical framework.

This compelling approach provides academics with a new way of thinking about employee behaviour while also acting as a guide for practitioners and managers.
