Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the relationships between international organizations (IOs). IOs may exchange information or participate in their respective fora of discussion. They can establish institutional arrangements to implement a given activity and provide a framework for common purposes. They can also receive logistical, material, or financial aid from each other for operational purposes. The establishment of public-private partnerships allows IOs to work with non-state actors to achieve goals. The latter contribute by mobilizing resources. Due to the specific character of the European Union (EU), its relationship with other IOs is unique and they have had to accommodate the EU through various modes of adaptation. Lastly, relationships with other organizations may give rise to complex forms of collaboration. The topic of responsibility sheds light on the difficulty of apprehending these relationships.
