Transnational policy networks are an attractive subject for both Development Studies and International Relations if we are interested in the consequences of globalisation on public policy-making. Both within North-South relations and within European Union politics these networks have recently been identified as a typical outcome of current transformations, thereby challenging the dominant state-centric perspective of international politics. This article focuses on the confrontation between approaches that propose these networks as a new governance instrument and a more critical and analytical perspective. Departing from a theoretical model which analyses transnational policy networks as inter-organisational resource exchanges, the illustrations focus on international secretariats such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the European Commission since these organisations play a core role within most transnational policy networks. The article argues that these networks are only relevant in very specific empirical conditions. Thus, their use as a new governance arrangement will be limited.
