Chapter Two provides a hands-on guide to the coding scheme. The authors measure delegation (the conditional grant of authority by member states to an independent body) and pooling (the joint exercise of authority by member states). They disaggregate by examining 1) the role and composition of institutional actors in an international organization (IO); 2) at distinct stages of decision making (agenda setting, final decision, opt-out, ratification, dispute settlement); 3) across six decision areas (accession, membership suspension, constitutional reform, budgetary allocation, financial compliance, policy making). The authors define the content and specify intervals for each indicator, and discuss how they avoid formalism, triangulate estimates, avoid contagion, and adjudicate ambiguity.

Keywords:   authority, agenda setting, final decision, opt-out, ratification, dispute settlement, coding scheme, indicators, error, adjudication
