Abstract
This talk will describe a new mode of pluralist global governance, which my co-authors (Graine de Burca and Charles Sabel) and I describe as “Global Experimentalist Governance.” Experimentalist Governance describes a set of practices involving open participation by a variety of entities (public or private), lack of formal hierarchy within governance arrangements, and extensive deliberation throughout the process of decision making and implementation. It is characterized also by continuous feedback, reporting, and monitoring and by established practices, involving peer review, for revising rules and practices. Experimentalist Governance arises in situations of complex interdependence and pervasive uncertainty about causal relationship, and its practice is illustrated by the arrangements devised to protect dolphins from being killed by tuna fishing practices; the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities; and the Montreal Protocol on the Ozone Layer. Without presenting a full theory of the conditions under which Global Experimentalist Governance arises, I put forward four tentative hypotheses about these conditions, for discussion. I propose that governments must be unable to formulate a comprehensive set of rules and efficiently and effectively monitor compliance with them; they must not be stymied by a lack of agreement on basic principles; civil society actors must be deeply involved in the politics of the issue; and the issue must not be a matter of high politics.
