About this book

The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is the only UN organization that is self-financing through fees earned on project management/provision of services in all development and humanitarian fields. Following a disruptive merger process its future looked in doubt. Combining perspectives from the disciplines of international relations, business and public administration, this book describes and analyses the ensuing reform, its problems and successes, as well as its relevance to other UN organizations and New Public Management theory.
