Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter is divided into three parts. The first part attempts to move beyond the fragmented debate on regulatory outcomes by highlighting the elements that link state and non-state actors. The second part aims to highlight the complex relationship between public and private actors (and between different categories of private actors), and briefly sketches several emerging trends in transnational governance. The third part attempts to clarify and define some important concepts that underlie the subject matter. The chapter concludes with a brief explanation of methodological issues, including the scope and limits of the Handbook.

Keywords: non-state actors; private actors; transnational governance
