Abstract

Directly or indirectly, global governance bodies limit the discretion of national regulators. In myriad ways – by imposing different kinds of requirements on states, or setting standards that determine how individual providers of goods and services act – these global institutions affect the life opportunities of all of us as individuals. This draft chapter begins by briefly offering a typology of this multitude of ways in which global bodies shape national policies and personal decisions, and then explores the justifications for such interventions and their limits.
