On the one hand, casting global governance in administrative terms might lead to its stabilization and legitimation in ways that privilege current power-holders and reinforce the dominance of Northern and Western concepts of law and sound governance. On the other hand, it might also create a platform for critique. As the extent of global administrative government becomes obvious (and framing global regulation in traditional terms of administration and regulation exposes its character and extent more clearly than the use of vague terms such as governance), the more resistance and reform may find points of focus. Thus, from the perspective of smaller developing countries, global regulatory institutions including the WTO, IMF,World Bank, and UN Security Council might already appear to be 'administering' them at the bidding of the industrialized countries, which are generally subject to far less intrusive external regulation. Confronting these issues in administrative terms may highlight the need to devise strategies for remedying unfairness associated with such inequalities.
