Introduction since most regimes and international organizations include frequent meetings and inter-governmental forums which permit transgovernmental activities. 55 International institutions are then expected to facilitate the access of transnational actors to the national policy-making processes. International regimes and organizations are likely to increase the availability of channels which transnational actors can use to target national governments in order to influence policies. INGOs and transgovernmental networks lobbying governments can do so more easily in the framework of international institutions.

Transgovernmental network-building involves behavior of bureaucratic actors which could be regarded as disloyal by their home governments. In the framework of international regimes and institutions, however, such practices become more legitimized, 53 Note that this volume - except for Cameron's chapter - does not investigate how transnational actors affect international institution-building and/or state compliance with international regimes. This would be an entirely different project following the line of reasoning developed by Keohane and Nye (in Power and Interdependence) that states form international regimes to cope with the effects of transnational interdependence.

38 European Economic and Monetary Union dependence - exemplified by the high and increasing trade dependence among them, the dense network of institutions that have developed over the past forty years, and the complicated intertwining of national and supranational policy-making - could be expected to have facilitated and encouraged the appearance and even proliferation of transnational relations among actors within the Community, and it would not be surprising if such actors were involved and influential in the development of an initiative as consequential as EMU.
