This chapter fulfils two purposes. It serves as a concluding summary to the book, but goes beyond that by elaborating on the key questions asked in the introduction to the volume, in order to advance the research agenda in the field of global social governance. The chapter briefly summarizes the empirical scenario of global social governance; and then moves on to develop a set of key characterizations of the emergence of global social governance. A number of conceptual and theoretical approaches from the studies of globalization, international relations/global governance, and international law are reflected upon. The chapter discusses the different ways in which global social policy actors relate to each other and what that implies for the structure of global social governance more generally. It particularly refers to theories of inter-actor relationships and complexity at the global policy level.

Keywords:   global social policy, global governance, structure, inter-actor relationships, complexity theory
