This paper is concerned with globalization and the institutional dynamics of global environmental governance. How do the phenomena of globalization shape the study of the institutional dimensions of global environmental governance, and how do these phenomena influence the practicality of law and state-centric politics? These questions guide the direction of this paper and its aim to advance theories and research methods for the study of the dynamics of institutions for governance. By synthesizing the conceptual findings of the literature, this paper develops an analytical framework of globalization and analytical themes to advance the systematic study of the dynamics of institutions, which are inherent in the design, function, and effectiveness of international and global environmental institutions and governance.
