The author engages with concepts and theories from IR, Political Economy, and African studies--like regime, forum shopping, and extraversion--to describe what shapes state choices in national and international fora. The volume clarifies and spells out the needed questions and definitions and proposes a synthesis of how regime formation is shaped by ideas, interests, and institutions, starting from the proposition that regulatory cooperation consists in facilitating the acceptance and use of a single identifier for private military and security companies. Marco Boggero teaches global policy at the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, USA."@en ;
