This book deals with a key feature of globalization: the rise of
regulation beyond the state. It examines the emergence of
transnational regulatory cooperation between public and private
actors and pursues an inquiry that is at once legal, empirical and
theoretical. It asks why a private actor and an international
organization would regulate cooperatively and what this tells us
about the material meaning of concepts such as 'expertise',
'authority' and 'legitimacy' in specific domains of global
governance. Additionally, the book addresses the structures and
patterns in which cooperation evolves and how this affects the
broader global order. It does so through an investigation of two
public-private cooperative agreements: one between the
International Standards Organization, the Organisation for Economic
Co-operation and Development, the Global Compact and the
International Labor Organization and one between the International
Olympic Committee and the United Nations Environment Programme.
