This article provides a review of the debates about how transnational institutions and international regimes have influence in the international political economy (IPE), how transnational institutions and international regimes are formed, and how they emerge. In the international relations (IR)/IPE, which is the basis for this article, answers to these questions reflect different traditions and approaches to the study of states and non-state actors, as well as to the methodological and conceptual tools of analysis. Many of these differences have become embedded in the strong theoretical divides that have defined IR/IPE along the lines of realism, liberalism, Marxism, ‘neo’-versions of all these, and, more recently, the rise of rational choice and constructivist approaches to the discipline. This article focuses on the ‘rationalist’ and ‘constructivist’ approaches and how they address the question of transnational institutions.
