Towards a Typology of Informal International Lawmaking Mechanisms and their Distinct Accountability Gaps

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter aims to map the different informal lawmaking mechanisms and to distinguish among the various actors that initiate and take part in informal international lawmaking (IN-LAW). The purpose of his exercise is to contribute to the assessment of possible 'accountability gaps' of IN-LAW, by taking into account the notion that different lawmaking mechanisms may benefit certain actors and constituencies while they disadvantage others. Who are the disregarded constituencies whose accountability deficit must be accounted for? And how can we address the accountability gaps of the INLAW processes?.
