about

Global rules are increasingly made without the direct involvement of states. This book explores what this privatisation of global rule-making means for democracy. Based on contemporary theoretical approaches to democratic global governance, it reconstructs three prominent rule-making processes in the field of global sustainability politics: the World Commission on Dams, the Global Reporting Initiative and the Forest Stewardship Council. The book argues that, if designed properly, private transnational rule-making can be as democratic as intergovernmental rule-making.
KLAUS DINGWERTH is Assistant Professor for International Relations at the University of Bremen, Germany, and Research Fellow of The Global Governance Project. He has published on global governance, transnational politics and global environmental politics.
