Group C – Co-operation in policy implementation A third set of indicators of institutionalization focuses on co-operative arrangements in the implementation of global governance. Implementation can mean carrying out projects in the field; for example, in development assistance, humanitarian aid, or environmental protection. This is not directly related to CSO input in the process of policy formulation. Nevertheless, such enhanced co-operation can lead to the adjustment or revision of rules. One of the first indicators for cooperation in policy implementation is whether or not IOs rely on CSO assistance in carrying out their projects, or delegate entire projects to CSOs (C1).

In the EU, there is little formalization, while the UN climate-change regime grants CSOs far reaching participation rights in its policy process. Development Patterns of participation in this field are characterized by a remarkable gulf between policy making and policy implementation. In the implementation of development projects, organizations rely heavily on nonstate actors. 5 CSOs are involved in all phases of its project cycle, including evaluation. However, this openness is not reflected at the level of political decision making.

This advisory practice, which is quite common inter alia in US domestic law, is known as ‘amicus curiae briefs’ (D1). Second, there might be the possibility for CSOs to file complaints against IOs or against state parties that violate or fail to implement the norms and rules of IOs (D2). Such possibilities for private parties greatly enhance the standing of non-state actors in international governance. Group E – Transparency The last set of indicators operationalizes our research on the criterion of transparency.
