Non-State Actors as Standard Setters: The Erosion of the Public-Private Divide
Basel, 8-9 February 2007
B.I.Gov. "The conference is dedicated to the analysis of the role of non-state actors and emerging political arenas that shape norms and standards of the public sphere. The key focus will be on countries of the South and on North-South comparative analysis. The objective is to develop an interdisciplinary and empirically grounded conceptual framework that links specific social, political and economic processes with the problem of generalising legitimate public authority."
