Collaboration and Coordination in the Global Political Economy

Vinod K. Aggarwal and C├ędric Dupont

Global Political Economy, 2004

This chapter considers the problem of collaboration by first characterizing the situations that might require states to work with each other to achieve a desired outcome (the problem of the nature of the goods involved). It then turns to an exposition of decision theory, with a focus on basic game theory as an analytical tool to tackle the nature of collaboration or coordination efforts. Finally, we consider how institutions might play a role in enhancing the prospects for cooperative behaviour.
