Abstract [en]

The formal access of transnational actors (TNA) to international organizations (IO) has increased steadily over the past five decades, and a growing body of literature is concerned with the theoretical justifications for why this has happened and the normative implications thereof. However, very little is known as of yet about who these TNAs are, where they come from, which issue areas they focus on, and when and where they participate. In other words, we have almost no knowledge of what the patterns of TNA participation in global governance are. Using analytical tools from interest group theory, in particular a small sub-field called population ecology, this article describes and explains the diversity of two populations of TNAs, namely the observer communities of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
