Chapter Summary

This chapter will argue on balance, networks offer a promising new mode of transnational cooperation. By providing for freer sharing of knowledge and expertise, networks strengthen the capacity of nations to implement international norms. One of the main advantages of transnational interaction among government officials is access it provides to specialized knowledge and expertise. For this reason, networks are most likely to form in response to cross-border problems, the solution of which depends largely on technical expertise rather than on political judgments. Finally, networks may be responding to either transnational or international law problems. Transgovernmental networks have also arisen among prosecutors of transnational and international crimes and among members of legislative bodies. Most networks respond to problems of transnational law. These are areas where states are still the principal actors charged with developing and implementing the rules - for instance, antitrust, securities and banking regulation, and anti-terrorism and financial crimes law enforcement.
