Regime Complexes: A Buzz, a Boom, or a Boost for Global Governance?

Abstract

Global Governance 19 (2013), 27–39 Regime Complexes: A Buzz, a Boom, or a Boost for Global Governance? Amandine Orsini, Jean-Frédéric Morin, and Oran Young Understanding the impact of regime complexes on global governance calls for creative policy thinking. This introduction provides a new and more precise definition of the concept of regime complex. It also suggests spe- cific tools to characterize regime complexes and analyze their impacts on global governance. The articles in this issue deepen the analytical under- standing of complexes by examining concrete examples in various domains of global governance such as piracy, taxation, energy, food security, emis- sions reduction, carbon sinks, biosafety, and refugee governance. In addi- tion to providing an in-depth description of a variety of different regime complexes, this issue is innovative on three accounts: (1) it presents com- plexes as both barriers and opportunities for global governance and gives explanations for these diverse outcomes; (2) it shows how a broad spec- trum of actors is necessary for understanding the creation and evolution of complexes; and (3) it qualifies former claims to the effect that only pow- erful actors can impact regime complexes.
