As Rose (2005: 4) argues, many contemporary ‘problems of national government are intermestic, combining both international and domestic influences’. This chapter considers in detail three types of international influences: the transfer of policies across borders; relatedly, the activities of international governing institutions; and indirect influences on policy-making from globalization, defined here as comprising the intensification of global flows of capital and of trade, and the related increasing transnationalization of business, as well as the growth of global flows of people and of information.
