This article focuses on the governance of global public policy. It reconceptualizes public policy for a global scale and offers some suggestions about how we might proceed analytically in order to move beyond a state-centric model of governance. The article reviews the key contributions to the conceptualization of global public policy by Wolfgang Reinicke, Diane Stone, and Phil Cerny, and also considers the ideas of vertical and horizontal subsidiarity, policy agoras, and transnational pluralism.
