Why have international institutions over the past decades increasingly opened up to transnational actors, such as NGOs, social movements, and multinational corporations?

What are the consequences of involving transnational actors for the democratic legitimacy, problem-solving effectiveness, and distributional effects of international institutions, such as the European Union, the United Nations, and the World Bank?

These are questions addressed by the research project Transaccess, directed by Professor Jonas Tallberg, funded by the European Research Council, and scheduled to last for the period 2009 to 2013.

The project is conducted in cooperation with the Transdemos research program at Lund University and Stockholm University.
