This Chapter focuses on the organization of the transnational regulatory space, the institutional responses to the proliferation of private schemes at the sectorial level and the quest for a greater legitimacy and effectiveness of transnational private regulations.  It is argued that multiple responses may concur.  One widely articulated response is orchestration by the public organizations.  Another, which has been less investigated, is the emergence of private meta-regulators to coordinate different schemes, increase overall legitimacy and improve effectiveness.  This paper sets out and compares different models of meta-regulators.
