From agriculture to sport and from climate change to indigenous rights, transnational regulatory regimes and actors are multiplying and interacting, with a range of beneficial and detrimental effects. This talk presents the results of an interdisciplinary research project that investigates whether, how and by whom “transnational business governance interactions” (TBGIs) can be harnessed to improve the quality of transnational regulation and advance the interests of marginalized actors. Drawing on a forthcoming edited book, the talk integrates concepts of interaction, marginalization, regulatory quality and regulatory capacity into a framework for studying transnational governance, explores selected examples of productive and unproductive TBGIs, and identifies opportunities for—and obstacles to—mobilizing TBGIs to enhance regulatory quality and empower marginalized actors in transnational business governance. The topic may interest scholars of law, regulation, business, politics, governance and society, as well as policymakers, civil society actors and professionals.
