Regulating Transnational Companies: 46 Proposals
¤ William Bourdon, Yann Queinnec ¤ 20 December 2011
This Proposal Paper hopes to provide an explanation of the constraints and a series of proposals for a system for the regulation of transnational companies (TNCs). This requires us to first set out the fundamental obstacles that make the question of regulating the activities of TNCs so problematic. The crisis in the financial system that has hit economies worldwide has demonstrated the importance of regulating for-profit private and public transnational actors. The difficulties states (...) read more

As a rule, it goes without saying that no international organization that claims to act as a subject of international law and to have an (...) read more

When World-regulation Experts "Play" the Regions ...
¤ Pierre Beckouche ¤ January 2005
After about twenty years of deregulation, it appears that we are moving beyond the era of dogmatic neoliberalism into one of re-regulation; the opposition between states and markets posited by neoliberal thinking is less and less convincing. This does not imply returning to a nation-state scenario. There is increasing convergence on the idea that new regulation will take place as much, or even more on the regional scale (macro-regions: NAFTA, East-Asia, Euromed, etc.) than on the global (...) read more
