Chapter Summary

Treaty negotiation has become a prolonged evolving regulatory process involving interacting national and international processes, multiple actors and numerous fora. This chapter first reviews the origins of several bilateral and multilateral regimes where distinctive corporate contributions are observable. The full range of participatory modalities and their respective merits are considered with respect to the evolving legal regimes with respect to ozone layer depletion and climate change. The chapter then examines intergovernmental efforts to enrich deliberations by soliciting contributions from non-state actors generally, as well as proposals defining the conditions for their inclusion. The prospect of an emergent right of participation for non-state actors discernable from the accreditation criteria and procedural rules applicable to Conferences of the Parties is also discussed in the chapter. Finally, the chapter identifies the degree of corporate influence upon the substantive outcome of treaty negotiations, and examines corporate roles during subsequent implementation.

Keywords: climate change prevention; corporate contributions; intergovernmental organizations; international legal regimes; non-state actors; ozone layer protection; treaty negotiation
