This chapter first describes the alternative adherence arrangements focusing on three issues: agent choice (including delegation), agent motivation, and agent's tools. The second section presents the patterns observed in the population of twenty-five global governance organizations (GGOs), with attention to the relationship between adherence regime features and the core characteristics of the entities. This includes the identification of conventional and composite adherence types using cluster analysis. The third and final section presents implications of the observed patterns for the understanding of GGO legitimacy and authority. This includes a novel account of the critical balancing role adherence plays in viable global governance regimes.
