dc.description.abstractHeads of international organisations (IOs) face serious challenges in leading these so-called memberdriven organisations. This paper discusses the qualities regarded as necessary for their successful tenure, stressing the need for trust, expertise, and legitimacy. It also analyses the three roles that the leaders of IOs, to a greater or lesser extent, must play. They are diplomats dealing with state leaders and talking in international forums. They are politicians negotiating with the state representatives on a daily basis. They are managers heading an often large secretariat. How they balance these roles often determines their capacity to shape the outcomes of their organisation.
