International Regulatory Co-operation

The Role of International Organisations in Fostering Better Rules of Globalisation

image of International Regulatory Co-operation

Borders are becoming increasingly porous, with growing flows of goods, services, people and capital. Governments, more than ever, need to co-ordinate their efforts to develop global standards to address climate change, as well as crises related to finance, health, environment and migration; secure peace; and ensure sustainable economic prosperity and social inclusion. International organisations play a key role in fostering multilateral action and addressing the fragmentation that may undermine effective domestic action. To shed greater light on international standard setting, this unique report collects, compares and assesses the practices of 50 international organisations on their governance arrangements, operational modalities, use of quality management disciplines and co-operation efforts. It analyses different types of organisations – inter-governmental, supra-national, trans-governmental and private – and identifies avenues for making their action more effective, inclusive and relevant.

Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)

The OPCW Member States share the collective goal of preventing chemistry from ever again being used for warfare, thereby strengthening international security. To this end, the Convention contains four key provisions:

a) Destroying all existing chemical weapons under international verification by the OPCW;

b) Monitoring chemical industry to prevent new weapons from re-emerging;

c) Providing assistance and protection to States Parties against chemical threats;

d) Fostering international co-operation to strengthen implementation of the Convention and promote the peaceful use of chemistry. In 2013, in recognition of its extensive efforts to eliminate chemical weapons, the OPCW was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
