We are pleased to announce our latest issue, which develops further JIOS' mission to understand international organizations as organizations.
Our Spring 2014 issue is a specially themed issue, guest edited by Julian Junk (Peace Research Institute Frankfurt) and Frederik Trettin (University of Konstanz).
The issue, entitled Micropolitics meets Geopolitics: internal dynamics and dysfunctions of international organizations discusses how bureaucracies can act as spoilers in peacekeeping operations.
In six articles the authors discuss UN missions in East Timor, Sudan and the DR Congo, as well as analysing inter-agency coordination problems.
The Spring 2014 issue marks the end of the editorship by founding editor Kirsten Haack. We welcome the new editor Kendall Stiles (Brigham Young University) to JIOS and look forward to continuing success in JIOS' mission to "understand international organizations".
