The term "institution" is broadly defined here and includes not only governance arrangements but also regulation, policies, and norms. The option will also explore new research findings of interest not only to theorists in international relations but also to policy-makers struggling with the issue of how to design effective and fair transnational institutional arrangements in a wide-range of issue-areas.'
