englischThis edited volume is devoted to analysing transnational expertise, a topic that has received considerable attention in the social sciences and history, especially in research on transnational professional networks and associations, epistemic communities and groups of practitioners. Yet more knowledge about transnational expertise is needed, given the growing importance of expertise in an ever more complex world in which interdependencies between different types of actors and organisations are increasing and in which these actors often have to cooperate to address transnational issues. While studies regarding the above-mentioned concepts have generally involved empirical cases of expertise in the context of transnational governance since the end of the Cold War, transnational expertise actually played an important role long before 1990. Therefore, this volume adopts an interdisciplinary approach that includes perspectives from history, sociology and political science.
