Governing Science and Technology under the International Economic Order: Regulatory Divergence and Convergence in the Age of Megaregionals. Edited by Shin-Yi Peng; Han-Wei Liu and Ching-Fu Lin; Edward Elgar Publishing, Cheltenham, UK, Hardcover, 2018, 416 pages, ISBN: 9781788115551.

To begin with, the authors could have done well to conceptualise governance as distinct from regulation, as also limiting the understanding of the International Economic Order to its structural elements and organisation.[1,2] It is another matter that even this epistemic division on the approach apart, the process of negotiation has several pitfalls.
