Chapter 3 explains why it makes sense to conceptualize international authority as delegation and pooling, and how these abstract qualities can be measured. A processual model of IO decision making disaggregates the rules for agenda setting, final decision making, bindingness of decisions, ratification, and dispute settlement across each of six decision areas—policymaking, constitutional reform, the budget, financial compliance, membership accession, and the suspension of members—for individual IO bodies. The chapter concludes by summarizing variation in pooling and delegation for seventy-six major IOs cross-sectionally and over time (1950–2010).
