Most of the problems facing policy makers today are of global dimensions. Different societies have become so interrelated through the streams of communication, trade, finances, people, crime and environmental pollution that cooperation between societies becomes inevitable. Even though private actors have increasingly grown from the role of addressees of transborder regulation into regulators themselves, the bulk of regulation is still borne by states. One of the most vexing problems of global rule making though is how to make sure that states actually implement such common rules and comply with the obligations they have accepted in the process.
