This concluding chapter analzes the results of the volume concerning the mechanism of OECD governance, their relating determining conditions as well as their resulting effects. Governance mechanisms of the OECD are generally applied in all policy fields even though with different intensity and at different times. Their application depends on external players, such as other IOs and important states as well as on internal dynamics, such as the competition between departments and directorates within the OECD and the expertise of OECD staff involved. Policy constraints do not seem to hinder its exercise of governance mechanisms, except for the mandate of the OECD which obviously compels it to view policy issues dominantly from an economic perspective. The effects of these mechanisms present a mixed picture: whereas policy change is a rather unlikely effect of OECD governance, policy coordination and policy convergence can be found in selected policy fields.
