 Governing the Provision of Global Public Goods: The Role and Legitimacy of Nonstate Actors

Show Summary Details

Preview

The provision of global public goods will impose two tasks (1) increase the role of non‐state actors (2) do this without permitting the operation of special‐interest politics to jeopardize their legitimacy. While non‐state actors are crucial to rebuilding the legitimacy of the international system, they are only likely to be accepted and effective in this role if they succeed in strengthening their own legitimacy in the eyes of governments, inter‐governmental organizations, and the general public.

Keywords: global public goods; legitimacy; non‐state actors
