This chapter evaluates the impact of transnational regulatory networks on the basis of a case study on the International Competition Network (ICN), an extensive but highly informal network, which was set up particularly since States could not agree on a formal legal antitrust regime. The chapter assesses whether we can nevertheless observe the emergence of alternative norm-enforcement mechanisms and the formalization of certain tools of learning or knowledge transfer. If anything, the chapter reminds us of the limits of informal international lawmaking (IN-LAW) and the need, in particular subject areas, for more formal commitments if cooperation is to be effective.
