Transnational Business Governance Interactions

Nov 21, 2012, 3:30pm-5pm

Law Professor Julia Black of the London School of Economics (LSE) will deliver the talk, "Transnational Business Governance Interactions: Analyzing Competition, Coordination and Conflict in Transnational Business Regulation", followed by commentary by professors Burkard Eberlein of the Schulich School of Business, Errol Meidinger (Buffalo) and Stepan Wood of Osgoode Hall Law School.

Black is also the director of the Department’s Law and Financial Market Project and a research associate of the LSE’s Centre for the Analysis of Risk and Regulation. Everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.

Her  talk will look at how a growing volume of business regulation, from accounting standards to sustainable fisheries certification, emanates from a heterogeneous array of non-state and hybrid public-private actors and institutions operating in a dynamic, transnational regulatory space. As these initiatives proliferate, they increasingly interact with one another and with state-based regimes, generating complex governance ensembles. Heterogeneous actors and institutions interact at multiple levels in various ways, from mimicry and cooperation to competition and conflict.

This phenomenon of transnational business governance interactions (TBGI) is ripe for systematic study. What are the forms and drivers of TBGI? What are its implications for regulatory capacity, regulatory performance and the impacts of regulation on social and environmental problems? To gain purchase on these complex issues, Black will offer an original analytical framework that disaggregates the regulatory process, focusing on the points at which interactions may occur and suggesting, for each point, a series of analytical questions that probe the key features of TBGI.
