Regime Complexity and Policy Coherency: Introducing a Co-adjustments Model

Regime Complexity and Policy Coherency: Introducing a Co-adjustments Model Global Governance 19 (2013), 41–51 Regime Complexity and Policy Coherency: Introducing a Co-adjustments Model Jean-Frédéric Morin and Amandine Orsini This article looks at regime complexes from a state policymaking perspec- tive.

Abstract

Global Governance 19 (2013), 41–51 Regime Complexity and Policy Coherency: Introducing a Co-adjustments Model Jean-Frédéric Morin and Amandine Orsini This article looks at regime complexes from a state policymaking perspec- tive. It develops a theoretical model in which regime complexes become denser over time while governmental policymaking becomes more coher- ent. Under this model, interactions between global regime complexes and national policymaking are twofold. On the one hand, greater policy co- herence generates negotiated mandates asking for regime connections and complex density. On the other hand, regime-complex density creates more cohesive audiences, which increase incentives for national policy co- herence. This co-adjustments model brings states into the discussion of in- stitutional interactions and critically questions the desirability and feasibility of recent calls for joined-up government and whole-of-govern- ment approaches.
