Summary, in English

This chapter analyses horizontal institutional interlinkages by stressing their embeddedness in overarching global norms. It explains the nature of institutional interlinkages in various policy domains, and their consequences for the development of specific global regimes. We explore, in particular, how certain dominant global norms may be reflected in the positional differences (and their resolution) within given institutional contexts. Our aim is to add to the evolving scholarly literature on interlinkages by offering a norm-based explanation of this much-studied phenomenon.
