Institutional Complexity in Global Governance

Dates:
  • Tue 28 May 2019 14.00 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-05-28 14:00 2019-05-28 17:00 Europe/Paris Institutional Complexity in Global Governance

Global governance structures are increasingly described as highly complex, fragmented, and polycentric. In many issue areas, the creation, design, evolution, and effectiveness of individual governance institutions are fundamentally shaped by how these institutions relate to and interact with other institutions operating in their domain. A large swathe of recent work in international relations and international law acknowledges the importance of institutional complexity for understanding global governance. However, much existing work focuses on developing typologies to better grasp the phenomenon and, empirically, are often based on the study of single cases, or limited to particular issue-areas. Thus, despite a fast proliferating literature on institutional complexity, major conceptual, theoretical, and empirical questions remain. The papers presented at this workshop address this research gap. Using new data and innovative methods, they map institutional complexity in a broad range of issue areas of world politics and develop new theoretical arguments to explain the emergence, development, and consequences of institutional complexity. Together, they make important theoretical and empirical contributions to the study of global governance and open up avenues for future research.
