Lenz, Hartmut (2012) Negotiating among equals? the effects of the world economic crisis on negotiations between developed and developing states. Politics & policy, 40 (5). pp. 827-847. ISSN 1747-1346
Frequently multilateral, regional, or global institutions are used to mediate conflict, overcome collective action problems, and create a framework for cooperation and governance. In recent years, especially in the context of the 2008 world economic crisis, international cooperation has become challenged by increased expectations of their problem-solving capabilities and their lack of means to deliver them. The complexity of issues seems to generate a demand for closer international cooperation as well as more flexibility in the framework of institutional cooperation, with varying degrees across regions. I analyze international cooperation from a bargaining perspective and identify the key factors that lead to success or failure in intergovernmental cooperation between developed and developing states. I also explore the impact of institutional variation on cooperation and emphasize the strong relationship between asymmetric information and negotiation failure. I argue that transparency in procedures and reduction of uncertainty are key issues to facilitate cooperation.
