From agriculture to sport and from climate change to indigenous rights, transnational regulatory regimes and actors are multiplying and interacting with poorly understood effects. This interdisciplinary book investigates whether, how and by whom transnational business governance interactions (TBGIs) can be harnessed to improve the quality of transnational regulation and advance the interests of marginalized actors.

‘Transnational Business Governance Interactions provides a detailed exploration of whether and how interactions between the transnational regulatory governance regimes of businesses in a range of sectors can be harnessed by those participating in them to improve regulatory quality and advance the interests of marginalised actors. It provides a rich set of case studies which examine when and how such interactions can be productive or constraining, and deepens our theoretical understandings of this important area of polycentric regulatory governance.’
