This chapter first establishes the key differences among rulemaking processes. Four dimensions of global rulemaking regimes are described and considered in the analysis—formality, decision calculus, decision rule, and permeability. The second section reports observed patterns of variation for the set of twenty-five global governance organizations (GGOs) under study. Based on cluster analysis of the distribution of rulemaking practices, two approaches to GGO rulemaking are identified: forum rulemaking and club rulemaking. The concluding third section considers the implications of the observed patterns with emphasis on the relationship between rulemaking and organizational structure, rule adoption, and the legitimacy-authority dilemma.
