Industry Associations and Transnational Governance


The conference brings together practitioners and scholars to discuss the role of industry (or trade) associations in transnational governance. The aim is to deepen the understanding of how industry associations develop and administer standards and rules for governing their members and their industries (e.g. pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, financial products), both within and across borders. The discussion will shed light on the dynamics between industry associations and the formal law-making bodies of governments and international organizations. It will further highlight the opportunities and challenges that associations encounter in carrying out their governance functions.

This event is organized by the International Organizations Interest Group of the American Society for International Law, the Rutgers Law School Center for Corporate Law and Governance, and the Rutgers Institute for Professional Education. For a full schedule and program, click here.
