This project explores the role of industry or trade associations in governance, both within and across borders. The aim is to create a forum for practitioners, regulators, and academics across disciplines to discuss the how and why of associations’ engagement in governance activities, ranging from informal standard setting to participating in international law making efforts. The project also examines the opportunities and challenges that arise as a result of involving associations in governance, at both national and international levels. Those interested are invited to attend (and organize) conferences in support of the project and to contribute to the Center’s working paper series on industry associations and transnational governance. The faculty contact point for this project is Prof. Sarah Dadush (firstname.lastname@example.org).
