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.




Universal Postal Union (UPU)

The UPU aims at securing the organisation and improvement of the postal services and promoting in this sphere the development of international collaboration. Accordingly, the UPU constitutes the primary forum for co-operation between postal sector players, and it helps to ensure a truly universal network of up-to-date products and services. In this way, the organisation fulfils an advisory, mediating and liaison role, and provides technical assistance where needed. It sets the rules for international postal exchanges and makes recommendations to foster sustainable growth in letter-post, parcel, postal payment and other international postal services, and to improve overall quality of service for customers.
