Abstract [en]

While international organizations (IOs) in recent decades have expanded the opportunities for transnational actors (TNAs) to participate in policy-making, significant differences remain across and within IOs. We argue that a neglected source of variation in openness is the policy approaches of IOs, understood as organizational styles of problem-solving. Policy approaches matter because one and the same governance problem may be tackled in multiple ways. Based on a descriptive statistical analysis and two case studies (Asian Development Bank, Commonwealth), we show that IOs which pursue a centralized approach to problem solving are less likely to involve TNAs than IOs that pursue a decentralized policy approach.
