Increasingly business regulation arises from non-state actors in the private sector and civil society, including public-private institutions, NGOs, and business firms. These regulations have become a fact of life for transnational companies, standards-setting groups, and governments as more and more of the norms and standards that govern business emanate from these non-state actors and operate in a dynamic, transnational regulatory space. For example, in forestry there are industry-based certificate systems that interact with NGO-centric regulations set by the Forest Stewardship Council, in additional to individual state regulations.

Scholars have devoted substantial attention to individual transnational business governance initiatives. However, individual initiatives seldom operate in isolation and as these schemes multiply it is important to explore the nature of the interacting governance structures. The Transnational Business Governance Interactions (TBGI) research project addresses this gap in the scholarship by focusing on the nature of business governance interactions as they develop across time and global space.
