CHOICE Review

Koppell (Arizona State Univ.) addresses two related question: What are the factors that define the nature of global rulemaking bodies? Why is it that these bodies continue to engender criticism on the issue of accountability? This critique of GGOs (global governance organizations) is a serious and important contribution to the understanding of the growing emergence of world government. Koppell bases much of his study on empirical research and the resulting published literature. GGOs are becoming increasingly important as their numbers increase and as they penetrate the administrative rulemaking process on the international level. This being the case, Koppell argues, there is an increase in awareness that these groups need to be accountable. He notes three styles of governance have emerged: cartels, which are based on coercion; classical, which look to domestic government consideration; and symbiotic; which rely less on government. The interaction of complex governmental organizations that exist beyond the paradigm of the nation-state provide the basis for an examination of a new source for the distribution of goods and services against the backdrop of accountability. Demands for accountability lead to matters that require management rather than resolution. This is an essential read for followers of international relations theory. Summing Up: Essential.
