The term ‘policy network’ is frequently used in the literature on national politics to emphasize the inter-organizational and informal aspects of policymaking (Jönsson 1995). The theoretical interest in policy networks in international relations originates (as do many other concepts in transnational governance) from research on the European Union. In their study of policy networks in the EU, Jordan and Schubert (1992) refer to three defining features of a policy network: its actors, their linkages, and its boundary.
Some organizations within such networks may gain particular influence by acting as “linking-pin organizations”, understood as ‘the nodes through which a network is loosely joined’ (Jönsson 1995: 2). These occupy central positions in terms of being reachable from, and able to reach, most other organizations in the network. We would add that one may, similarly, speak about linkingpin actors. Jönsson also speaks of boundary-role occupants, referring to activist brokers between their own organization and its environment; they not only represent the organization to its environment, but also represent the environment to their constituents.
They negotiated in secret, then reported their agreements to national legislatures and publics’ (Keohane and Nye 2001: 220). This lack of transparency, they argue, is a key to understanding the public protests against the multilateral institutions – at a series of events starting in Seattle in 1999. Writing about the same phenomenon, Michael Zürn (2004) uses the concept executive multilateralism: ‘a decision making mode in which governmental representatives (mainly cabinet ministers) from different countries coordinate their policies internationally, but with little national parliamentary control and away from public scrutiny’ (Zürn 2004: 264).
