From Mutual denegation to Mutual Recognition

Abstract : Intergovernmental Organizations (IGO) act in a world framed by national states in which Nongovernmental Organizations (NGO) also compete by means of advocacy and implementation of norms and policies. Despite their dissimilarities and the confrontation that sometimes takes place between IGO and NGO, they also collaborate. To test this model of cooperation, this paper examines the fields of commerce (World Trade Organization) and the atom (International Atomic Energy Agency) and shows that strategic cooperation between IGO and NGO takes the shape of "mutual recognition," a form of collaboration that is implicit, informal, and asymmetric. Conditions for such successful cooperation include sufficient NGO specialization on the issues addressed by the targeted IGO and network building among NGO to facilitate joint action. Differences between the two cases are also examined, and a broader account of the possibility of cooperation between such unlike units is also proposed.
