Abstract and Keywords
In recent decades, the development of public policies has shifted significantly from the national level to a transnational one. On many issues, from finance to computer security, transnational policy communities and regulatory networks now coordinate a myriad of stakeholders from different sectors, set agendas, create policies and standards, and support their global diffusion. While the existence of these new forms of governance is well established in the literature, our knowledge of the formation, the governance structures and the instruments for managing transnational policy communities and regulatory networks are limited. This contributes to equally limited attention to the challenges of managing such communities and networks. New avenues of research include questions about the power within and exerted by transnational communities and networks, as well as their organizational quality and relative effectiveness.
