This chapter examines the complex relationship among global governance organizations (GGOs) with an emphasis on the distinctive dynamics of simultaneous coordination and competition. The first section offers an overview of the varieties of regulatory competition in the global governance context. The second section discusses cooperation among GGOs. The third section explains strategic behavior in the GGO environment. This preliminary analysis of the dynamics of competition and cooperation in global governance suggests that the substantive matter of rules and the nature of the rulemaking organization are the prime drivers of observed variation. When two established (typically governmental) GGOs confront novel issues that transcend established jurisdictions, there is a high probability of “co-opetition,” cooperation even as competition for primacy continues.
