John Gerard Ruggie, “International Responses to Technology: Concepts and Trends,” International Organization, 29, no. 3 (1975): 570; Later, a “consensus definition” by a group of leading international relations scholars emerged: “Regimes can be defined as sets of implicit or explicit principles, norms, rules and decision-making procedures around which actors expectations converge in a given area of international relations. Principles are beliefs of fact, causation and rectitude. Norms are standards of behavior defined in terms of rights and obligations. Rules are specific prescriptions or proscriptions for action. Decision-making procedures are prevailing practices for making and implementing collective choice.” Stephen Krasner, “Structural Causes and Regime Consequences: Regimes as Intervening Variables,” in ed.
