Rolling out new TBGI Project working papers

News Publications & Resources

The summer of 2018 was busy for the TBGI project. Stepan Wood, Errol Meidinger, Burkard Eberlein, Rebecca Schmidt and Ken Abbott were hard at work finalizing an edited collection of papers exploring the question of how, when and by whom transnational governance interactions can be harnessed to enhance the quality of regulation and advance the interests of marginalized actors. The papers emerge from a workshop at York University in 2016. The collection will be published soon as a book by Edward Elgar publishing. In the meantime, we are issuing the draft chapters as working papers in the TBGI Project Working Paper Series on a rolling basis as they are completed, to give the work early exposure.
