'This book is a welcome addition to the literature on global governance. In addressing the role of non-state actors in rule making it provides a cogent challenge to assumptions that only state-based institutions provide a basis for both legitimate and effective governance.' - Marcus Haward, Associate Professor, School of Government and Institute of Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies, University of Tasmania, Australia.
'...this work is valuable in offering a specific, well-defined and carefully developed framework of assessing the ''democratic credentials'' of transnational rule-making. As such, it would make a fine addition to graduate courses in transnational politics and globalization' - International Studies Review
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.
