While to lawyers — trained to think in terms of neatly separated legal boundaries — governance phenomena and transnational relations may feel uncomfortable, international relations (IR) theory has addressed transnational, non-State, cooperation from the outset. This chapter argues that IR scholars have to some degree overlooked the changing character of network-based informal cooperation among public actors. It seeks to fill this gap by proposing a typology of bodies involved in informal international lawmaking. The chapter further reveals some lessons to be learned from IR theory, particularly the principal-agent model, for informal international lawmaking (IN-LAW).
