Globalisation is underpinned by international organisations that develop policy scripts to diffuse around the world, and we present an integrative model for understanding how boardroom dynamics within international organisations impact the content of global scripts, focusing specifically on the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund, a body that decides on economic policy issues impacting the lives of billions.

Leonard Seabrooke is Professor of International Political Economy at the Copenhagen Business School. His research is concerned with how intergovernmental organizations, firms, NGOs, and consultancies develop policy scripts across a range of issue areas.
Alexander E. Kentikelenis is Associate Professor of Political Economy and Sociology at Bocconi University. He has published extensively on decision-making in global governance, and the social consequences of economic policies.

Susan Sell is a Professor at ANU School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet). She serves on the Board of Geneva-based IP-Watch, a reporting service targeted at under-resourced negotiating delegations. Professor Sell has been a consultant for the Ford Foundation, the Open Society Institute, and the World Health Organization. In 2015-2016 she was appointed to the Expert Advisory Group for the United Nations Secretary General’s High-level Panel on Public Health and Access to Medicines.
