New Global Regulatory Mechanisms and the Environment:
MetadataShow full item record
Summary This article seeks to highlight the emerging linkage between the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). This relationship is seen against a background of liberalisation, and more generally of profound changes in the structure of global governance. Indeed, after having promoted deregulation on a massive scale, the time seems to be ripe to reintroduce regulation, albeit in a new format. Standards, especially environmental standards, appear to provide new forms of global regulation. As a result, we witness the emergence of new forms of actor arrangements, dominated by private, as opposed to public actors.
