Show Summary Details


Stephen Welch and Caroline Kennedy‐Pipe consider the relevance of multi‐level governance to developments in international relations (IR). In doing so, they provide a synoptic review of five issue areas in IR, where multi‐level governance might be thought likely to arise, before coming to an assessment of the utility of the concept in this field. The areas discussed are the international system, the role of supranational organizations, international civil society, international civic norms, and transnational threats and risks.
