Stepan Wood
This talk argues that the unlikely success of organised labour in the drafting of the ISO 26000 social responsibility guide illuminates the interactive dynamics of regulatory legitimation and enrolment, suggesting a generalisable triadic strategy in which a regulatory underdog exploits legitimation differentials between a legitimacy-poor regulator and a legitimacy-rich booster to advance its interests in transnational governance.

An examination of how Xi is handling these disparate challenges will throw light on the trajectory of China’s development and domestic politics.
