New Book on business lobbies in biodiversity governance authored by Amandine Orsini 2010 has been proclaimed the International year of biodiversity. Though, the role played by firms in the negotiations of the international agreements on this topic is still unclear. In order to better understand such a role, this book analyses the influence of business lobbies in the past and current negotiations of two sub-agreements of the Convention on biological diversity. These two sub-agreements deal respectively with biotechnology applications and natural genetic resources. Have corporations been successful in imposing their preferences during the negotiations of both agreements? Have they dictated their rules or, to the contrary, have they been forced to comply to governmental decisions? A detailed empirical analysis of the industrial lobbying strategies developed in preparation to and during the negotiations helps answer to these questions.

Call for Papers, 2010 REPI Workshop on "Issue-Linkages and Regime- Complexes", Université libre de Bruxelles, 21-22 May Brussels Organized by: REPI (All participants will have their transportation and hotel paid)
Deadline for submitting a proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org: Tuesday, 15 December 2009.
International politics have been handled by a growing number of international regimes, in extended issue areas such as international economy, security, migration, or the environment. While these regimes were initially meant to address specific issues, their scope have been extended, creating what has been described as “regime complex”, “regime interplay”, or “overlapping regimes”. As a consequence, human rights issues are discussed at the WTO, climate change at the IMF, and gender at the Security Council. The 2010 REPI Workshop will explore the causes and consequences of issue-linkages and regime-complexes.
