The contributions to this special issue highlight critical issues in the study of Resourcing International Organizations (IOs), including resource diversiﬁcation, the complexity of related actor constellations, and organizational differentiation that goes hand in hand with resource diversiﬁcation. The ﬁndings documented in the contributions reveal how IOs seek to obtain and allocate funds, and how resourcing-related concerns pervade their organizations. It also illustrates the value-added of an approach to the study of IOs that hones in on their administrations, their capacity for strategic action and their inter-connectedness, in short, an ‘administrative governance perspective’. The central message is that IO resourcing matters both practically and analytically.
