The chapters in this book are an in-depth examination of the processes of norm diffusion and contestation. They examine four emerging economies and their positioning in international norm production processes, the role of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the norms Chinese companies have to comply with in their operations abroad. As explained in the introduction, the origin of this book stems from a large research project that examined how global norms reach decision-makers in the emerging economies of Brazil, China, India and Turkey. While we have expanded this original focus considerably following the conclusion of the project, this chapter returns to the origins of this research and compares the findings of the four country case studies by using our original hypotheses.
