Editorial Reviews


As national governments enter into an ever-increasing number of international agreements, they provoke questions of issue, jurisdiction, and membership overlap. Practitioners and analysts are particularly curious about how this hodgepodge of institutional agreements can affect the content, operation, performance, and effectiveness of a specific institution, as well as the functioning of overall global governance. To explore the effects and consequences of widespread institutional agreements, this volume focuses on the topic of biosafety. Its role in agriculture, ecology, medicine, and chemistry make biosafety an issue that transcends numerous institutions, and as such it offers an excellent case study to explore and apply interplay in practical terms.
