This ground-breaking book explores the phenomenon of informal international organizations--weakly-legalized bodies that differ significantly from the formal institutions traditionally relied upon by the global community. It advances a new way of thinking about these organizations, presents new data revealing their extraordinary growth over time and across regions, and offers a novel account explaining why states have embraced them. Roger locates the origins of informality in major shifts occurring within the domestic political arenas of powerful states, explaining how these have projected outwards and reshaped the legal foundations of global governance. The book systematically tests this theory, presents detailed accounts of the forces behind some of the most important institutions governing the global economy, and draws out the policy implications of this account. While informality has allowed the number of multilateral institutions to grow, Roger argues, it has coincided with a decline in their quality, leaving us less prepared for the next global crisis.

Elena V. McLean, The Review of International Organizations ...a novel and insightful account of informality in international cooperation...The book is certain to inform and inspire subsequent research on the formation and evolution of international organizations.

Kim Moloney, Murdoch University, Wiley This book is extraordinarily well put together. Its theoretical framework builds upon prior informal IO [international organization] scholarship to articulate an alternative theory to informal IO creation. Its unique data set of informal IOs, its thorough and transparent quantitative analysis, and its cohesive integration of archival research and historical analysis across six case studies will substantially advance scholarship.

Robert O. Keohane, Professor Emeritus of International Affairs, Princeton University Charles Roger shows that the number and proportion of informal international organizations have increased rapidly recently, and provides strong evidence for an innovative explanation focusing on the autonomy of regulatory agencies and increases in domestic constraints. The Origins of Informality is an important book

Miles Kahler, , Distinguished Professor, School of International Service, American University Informal international organizations have grown in number and prominence in recent decades, from G20 summits to regulatory forums and climate change clubs. Charles Roger provides the most comprehensive investigation to date of this important sector of global governance, explaining why states create these organizations and evaluating their contribution to the effectiveness and accountabiliy of global collective action

Liesbet Hooghe, W.R. Kenan Distinguished Professor, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill This impressive volume advances a theory of informal governance that places domestic politics at its center. Aside from developing a compelling theory, Roger introduces one of the first systematic measures of informal governance, and hereby contributes to a broad effort in IR to put the study of global governance on a sound empirical footing. The Origins of Informality is essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of global governance
