This chapter examines prominent organizations drawn from various issue areas and time periods: the World Food Program (1930s to 1960s), the United Nations Development Program (1950s to 1960s), and the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (1980s to 1990s). The comparative case studies support all three of the book’s predictions. International bureaucrats’ own insulation from states’ interference, as well as their alliances with personnel in fellow intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) or in non-governmental organizations, shape the extent to which they agenda-set in institutional design negotiations. This, in turn, affects the extent to which they can insulate new IGOs from state control. The book’s argument holds across diverse time periods, issue areas, and international bureaucracies. And international bureaucrats’ role and impact in the institutional design process is not only a widespread phenomenon—it is also a phenomenon that touches prominent institutions about which scholars and practitioners are most likely to care.

Keywords:   agenda-setting, alliance, bureaucracy, design, insulation, institution, Joint United Nation Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), non-governmental organizations, United Nations Development Program (UNDP), World Food Program (WFP)
