Abstract [en]

What role does leadership play in facilitating international cooperation in a complex global world beset by a variety of enduring and emerging transnational challenges? Scholars and practitioners alike have pointed to the importance of leadership in surmounting the barriers associated with reaching international agreements and achieving cooperative solutions. This chapter examines the relationship between international cooperation and leadership by critically reviewing the important contributions that have been made concerning the conceptualization of leadership, the motives actors have for engaging in leadership behavior, the sources of leadership influence, as well as the various modes of leadership that aspirants of international influence can utilize. It also highlights recent research that has focused on the demand side of leadership, leadership recognition, the factors that influence how followers select leaders, and the impact leadership exerts on international cooperation and negotiation outcomes. The chapter closes by pointing to new research frontiers that scholars of international leadership would profit from better addressing in the future, such as the need to increase our knowledge concerning shared leadership and the role of leadership in the post-negotiation and implementation phases of multilateral cooperative endeavors.
