Summary To address global problems like climate change, transnational networks promote "best practices" locally around the world. Grassroots Global Governance explains the variations in their success levels and why implementing these "global ideas" locally causes them to evolve at the international level. Ultimately, the book demonstrates how global governance is partially constructed at the grassroots.
