Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reviews and discusses various aspects of engagement between national civil servants and their international environment, with the aim to establish how these have evolved in a context of growing globalization. This is a research topic that offers ample opportunity for further investigation and review, given the scant literature available on the subject. The authors review the topic through the prism of engagement in multi-level governance systems, patterns of influence in relations between global development actors and national officials and relations between US officials and their international counterparts. At the end of the chapter, an agenda for further research on this important but under-researched topic is presented.

Keywords: civil service, globalization, internationalization, policy advice, interactions in multi-level governance systems, public sector reforms
